This weekend I will be helping my Mother-In-Law move into her new apartment so I thought I better get my project of the week up in case I am exhausted tomorrow. At christmas De from http://delightfulminis.blogspot.com posted the sweetest christmas tree made from pipe cleaners and generously posted instructions on how to make one. Her original tutorial is in natural green- but after seeing the silver tree she posted a little while later I knew that would be the perfect tree for my dollhouse bakery. Here are De's original instructions- this is a link to the first part and then she has 2 posts after this one that further explain the technique: http://delightfulminis.blogspot.com/2009/12/pipe-cleaner-tree-tutorial-part-1.html
http://delightfulminis.blogspot.com/2009/12/pipe-cleaner-tree-tutorial-part-2.html and http://delightfulminis.blogspot.com/2009/12/pipe-cleaner-tree-tutorial-part-3.html
Here is a picture of De's silver tree that I admired sooo much: http://delightfulminis.blogspot.com/2009/12/aluminum-christmas-tree.html
and......here is my tree- I had to try it out in the bakery. I think I left the branches way too long and I need to trim them up a bit- but I was scared of cutting them too short- better to be able to cut away then try to add back :) Thank you so much for the great tutorial De!!!! Hope everyone has a great weekend!!!
