    I made my own mini-trees this year.

    I got spiral tomato obelisks, only $12 each at Bunnings. Then put lights on them.

    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!
