Pipe Cleaner Holiday Tree

My instructions for the above tree are from an old Family Circle Magazine from the 1970's. This one measures 5" at the bottom and almost 10" high. It's loaded with faux pearls and lots of tiny shells. When I cut the pipe cleaners, I made enough for two trees. Hopefully I will get to posting that one next week. I am still working on finishing a crocheted vest and another snowball scarf. If you want to give the pipe cleaner tree a try, Martha Stewart has a really nice tutorial for the tree pictured above. You can find it HERE.

Very pretty tree, Marlene. I would never have guessed it's made of pipe cleaners! The pearls and shells provide the perfect contrast, plus they give it a nautical theme.
