Plastic bottle Christmas tree

Good time to all. The last days of autumn are already on the street and we don’t have time to look around when the new year will knock on our door. Many are already thinking about how to decorate their home on the eve of the holiday. Today I will show you a small master class on how you can make a Christmas tree decoration “Herringbone” from “nothing.” We will need: - Flexible wire (thick for the trunk and thin for the twigs).
- Plastic, green bottles. - Scissors. - Candle. - Lighter. - Wool threads of green or brown color. - Pot. - Plaster or other mix. - Vata. - Glue. - Artificial snow. - Christmas-tree decorations. First of all, we should do the trunk of the future crafts. Take a few identical pieces of wire, twist them together. On the one hand we bend the ends of the wire, insert it into the pot and pour it with a solution of gypsum. This will be the trunk.

Putting the pot aside for a while,Let the plaster dry up. In the meantime, we will be engaged in the manufacture of branches for Christmas trees. First we make needles. We take a plastic bottle of green color, cut off the bottom and neck from it. Then the remaining part is cut into strips of the same width. The wider the strips, the longer the needles will be. There is nothing terrible if the strips are not exactly smooth. This will not be noticeable later.

And now we will cut each strip so that we have a fringe. It will be needles. The finer you cut the fringe, the more beautiful the branches will be at the Christmas tree.

After we have made enough strips of needles, you can start making branches. We take one strip of fringe, in one corner we make a small hole. Then we take the wire (thin), cut the desired length of the segment and push it into the hole, then bend the wire in half, twist the ends together. See how it should work out.

Now we are starting to carefully wrap the fringe on the wire,Smooth edge slightly fueled over the candle for a better fit to the wire.

Part of the wire is left without needles, we will then wind it on the trunk of the Christmas tree. Here is a twig.

You can leave a sprig of this, or you can lightly melt the needles above the candle. This is the way you like it better, I am under the needle.

Thus we make twigs of different lengths. As you have already understood, the length of the branch is determined by the length of the wire. Just take a segment longer or shorter, as you need.

How many sprigs you need for one Christmas tree are also determined by yourself. It all depends on the height of the tree. I will have a low Christmas tree, the branches on it will be in four rows.The first row, starting from the top of my head, consists of four branches, the next row will consist of five branches, then six branches, and so on. As a result, you can easily calculate how many twigs you need and do everything at once, in order to then not be distracted. The twigs are made and the trunk sits firmly in a pot? Then it's time to collect the tree. We start to collect it from above. First, fasten the crown, it should be the shortest. The bare ends of the wire tightly bend around the trunk.

Then in the same way we attach the twigs to a longer one.

So we attach all the branches, we just do them at different levels.

Herringbone is almost ready, but the trunk looks ugly. We will fix this with the help of threads. We wrap the trunk with woolen threads. Thus, we will not only give it an aesthetic look, but also add thickness where necessary. The end of the thread fix the usual glue.You need to start wrapping threads on the top of your head.

Inside the pot we glue cotton wool, thereby imitating snow.
