Mini Christmas Tree Craft

This type of mini-Christmas Tree is made from a cone of chicken wire filled with slightly moistened sphagnum or wood moss.  It is easy and fun to make.  Fun for home use, the office and even to sell at craft fairs!

These mini-Christmas Trees can be decorated in the traditional way, but a neat idea is to use cellophane-wrapped multi-colored lollipops.  Insert them into the moss base as you do the evergreen sprays. But better include some cranberries wired together and inserted too; the lollipops have a strange way of  vanishing with children around!

    I remember in High School in the ’60s making a tree from shaping a cone out of chicken wire then taking squares of net and twisting it and sticking into the each hole then putting tiny christmas balls all over it. It was very pretty. We made them in all colors
