Here's the ornament display tree I built yesterday. The ornaments really shine on the display and when they hit each other they clink like a wind chime. I painted the display a cedar brown color so I can use it year round. I need to apply a second coat of paint. The 2 x 2 could have been sanded for a more finished effect. This tree can hold lots of ornaments; I need to make more to fill up the tree. Even with the weight of the ornaments the tree is very sturdy.
Around the base I've placed some burlap fabric I had on hand. At the base I've placed some heart, star, and a teddy bear pendants strung on leather cord. Placing pendants under the tree allows for a double display. I think I'll sew a skirt to place under the tree with velcro to hold the seam together on one side. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
