A small handmade Christmas tree

 ελληνικό κείμενο

At first I made this tree as a display for some Christmas ornaments I had made. I needed something inexpensive and quick to make. So I opened the closet where I keep the "maybe I 'll need this some day" things and found a piece of wood 70 cm long where I opened holes from one side to the other, with 0,7 cm diameter with a drill. Each one has a 5cm distance from the others.


Then I found a piece of melamine where I opened a hole with diameter equal to the diameter of the stick.



Two coats of white paint to unify the look of the different materials and because I like it.


Then I pressed the stick into the hole of the base and started adding to each hole of the stick a used color pencil, the longer ones on the bottom and the shorter as I moved to the top. 


And here it is decorated:
