A wonderful Artificial Christmas tree make out of Christmas balls – instructions
An artificial tree made of Christmas balls you can easily make yourself – the result looks really stylish! You will need about 20 Christmas balls in different sizes (to get a spiral effect), a 14cm long knitting needle, a ribbon reel and possibly a star for the tip. Thread the knitting needle through the bottom of the spool and put small pieces of styrofoam into the hole if it is too large – it is important that the needle is upright. For the base of the tree you need four large Christmas balls. Arrange these on the needle by sliding the metal loops of the balls over the tip. Repeat this process with another four balls, which are slightly smaller – each ball is fitted between two of the larger ones. Continue to scale the ball according to your size – the smallest should be at the top of the tree. Depending on your wishes, the Christmas tree can consist of sixteen, twenty or more balls – in this case, however, the knitting needle should also be slightly larger. At the top you attach the poinsettia or other ornaments to your taste. And done! If desired, you could also decorate the floor with green branches or colorful bows, so that your homemade, artificial Christmas tree still fest festlicher looks like.
