A Dollhouse sized Aluminum Christmas Tree


Blog friend, Michelle had requested that I share some other decorations I was making for the dollhouse. So, here is the tree I briefly shared about about in the last post. It's my version of the popular vintage aluminum Christmas tree. I made it out of silver pipe cleaners and half of a styrofoam ball. For the ornaments I just used beads and wire. It's far from perfect but I think it's fun for the dollhouse. Plus, my daughter likes it so that's what really counts. I'm still debating if I should make a tree skirt for it. What do you guys think?

Lovely tree but a skirt would be nice! It'll complete the look.

Oh lordy, the cuteness of that tree is killing me! Thanks for giving us a close-up look. Yes, please, do a skirt, do a skirt! (No pressure...)

Awe the tree and wreath are darling! Thank you for sharing this :)

This cuteness is killing me. You HAVE to make a tree skirt ... for it to look even more real!

Amazing! You are so clever.

I don't know about a tree skirt. It does need something, but would a skirt detract from the mod coolness? What about dipping that styrofoam stand in bright green paint? Or covering it with brightly-colored clay for a smooth finish?

Hi,
I've been a huge fan of your blog for quite some time now!
I LOVE the fact that the halved styrofoam looks like a pile of snow. I'd say keep the original look. :-)

That is awesome! If only I had a full size one for my house.
