I just wanted to share my finished project..I had a blast doing it and I really think it came out beautiful. Thank you for sharing this idea.
We wanted to share our version of the Christmas Ornament Tree Project
My husband and I immediately wanted to tackle this project. After about 5 to 6 hours, he and my father-in-law finished.
We love it, but it definitely took some time. We're trying to figure out how to store it without making a big tangled mess. Not sure we would do it again based on the amount of time, but it will be a great centerpiece for our Christmas party!
We also wanted to share our tree. It took us about 2 hours to do it. Our light wasn't the best for this and we ended up just tying some of the balls on rather then use hooks. We broke 2 with the hooks because they fell off.
Also the center was bugging us. We could not get the center balls to hang in a straight line and we wanted to fill in the middle. So I took 5 of the balls and drilled a very small hole in the bottom of them so I could run the line straight through all 5. The result was great.
If you are going to do this, I used a 1/16 drill bit and on slow. Be very careful not to apply to much pressure or the ball will break. Also make sure to keep your fingers in between the ball and the drill, CAREFULLY, so that when the bit goes through you don't smash into the ball with the drill. This will also break the ball, as I learned. It took me @ 30 mins to drill out all 5 balls and another 30 mins to string them all. But the result was great.
Just another suggestion.
Opps - forgot to add the image - sorry
My purple and silver tree!! I put bows and mini presents underneath!
Hello kdiguiseppe and welcome to The Community! We are glad to have you join the forum.
Wow, that’s a really nice ornament tree!
I really like the way you chose the silver and purple to go with the room as well.
It’s also a wow to see such a rich wall color.
That really sets off a formal look to this dining room.
Again, thanks for sharing,
