All you need to make it is 30 feet of plush garland. 6 wire hangers. Zip ties or twist ties. A strand of lights. I think we used a strand of 100 mini lights so many years ago. I've been debating this in my mind though. 50 seemed like it would be enough and 100 perhaps too much. I was at the hardware store today and saw a box of 70 lights and figured it was middle of the road . . . perfect. The bulbs were a little bigger than the typical strand of lights, this could work too. Having made the tree I have mixed thoughts on the lights. I would opt for the 100 bulb strand to have more lights, but then, I like lights. I like the bulbs of what I used today because they stand out more when the tree isn't lit. You decide which is better if you choose to make it.
It took less than 2 hours to make this. I walked the dog during that time and had to rewrap the bottom part of my lights. Overall, a quick easy craft that is nice for Christmas in your home, office, a gift, for a child away from home to snazz up their space.
