Hi
I'm wanting to get made or buy 10 mini trees. I only want the mini tree's to be 2ft or there abouts high. I know i can buy them from wow lighting but am trying to source them if possible from here in Australia if anyone knows of them being sold or made by anyone your information would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks

Hi Paul and Dale,
I got something from Bunnings. Only $12 each.

If you're only after a 2d effect (as in people aren't going to walk around them) use fencing wire to make up a triangle the size you want with the two ends of the wire hanging down the sides....

Something like this shape:
Code:
  .
 / \
/   \
|---|
|   |
The prongs stick into the ground so the tree is self supporting and you just wrap light string around it.


To make it:
Code:
Start with your wire:
---------------------------------------

Bend both sides up:

\         /
 \       /
   \    /
    ----

Then cross the sides over at the top:
\      /
 \    /
  \  /
   \/
   /\
  /  \
 /----\

And fold the sides back down(so the top part is double wire):

    /\
   /  \
  /----\
 /      \

The straighten the bits at the bottom:
    /\
   /  \
  /----\

Cheers!
