This turned out so well that I'm gonna have to make one to keep, too. :0) This one will be listed tomorrow in my etsy shop. The ornaments and tree skirt go with it.
This is even easier to make than the green one because there are no cross branches. You have to use a skinny dowel to look authentic. Otherwise, it goes together just like the other tree.
The tree skirt is based on one from the 50s that I saw in a photo. I made all of the ornaments and the tree topper is a shank button so all I had to do was slip the shank loop over the top of the tree. Cool!
