Create anything for Christmas.
I wanted to create something light, stylish and huge. After brainstorming, I decided to create a Christmas tree which would allow other students to hang their decorations. The only way to get the biggest tree from 76×76 sheet of plywood was to combine different layers of circles with threads and hang them to the ceiling.
First stage was sketching:
Then I draw a model in Autocad. Multiple number of holes enable to connect the layers and to have space to hang the decorations.
The model was 74×74 cm, with nine circles one in another.
I was thinking of making the tree gold or silver, but ended up painting it white using the white spray paint:
After an hour the spray became dry, so I started to asseble the tree. In order to make the tree higher, I made 3 different types of threads: 30, 40 and 50 cm.
Finally, I decorated the tree with red and silver toys:
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Hope, you got inspired by my tree.
