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!
Single sprays of evergreen, 4 to 6 inches long, are then inserted firmly into the moss base to outline a very bushy miniature tree. These trees are easy to make and should make an excellent item for craft sales – especially if placed on a small decorative tray.
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!
