How to Make your Own Artificial Christmas Trees

Updated on February 27, 2013

Artifical Christmas Tree such a Temptation!

Artifical Christmas Trees...Make Your Own

It all started one snowy day in December when my owner put up her Christmas tree. She went out and bought her tree a month early, a live balled one at that, and she watered it every day. The fragrance was intoxicating and I went around the tree everyday wondering what it would be like to be outside in the snow circling a tree for a bird. I looked at those glistening balls with glitter and they caught my eye, a few pounces up on my hind feet made her laugh and say,

“Oh how cute, don’t touch Troubles!”

My silly owner put the tree on this old antique trunk, and then lured me with a white drape over the base with thousands of tassels hanging down for my claws to snatch. She kept smiling and saying oh look he’s so cute. Hey I took that as a go ahead and play all you want. See I only was three months old and had more energy than I knew what to do with.

She fed me well, and the dog just laid around the house, so I figured let me try climbing the tree like all the cats do in the TV shows. Outside looked fun, but I liked staying warm by the fireplace when I was snoozing. My paws never touched the snow, and they never will.

My owner got busy one day and that was my opportune time to climb the Christmas tree and see what it felt like, besides she lured me by putting a few feathered bird ornaments at the top. That’s my excuse and I will stick to it.

When I wiggled my behind and put my ears down to my head I ran with all the energy I could muster right up to the tree top.

A loud crash was heard and the tree came down to the floor. The tub it was sitting in full of dirt and water splattered all over her nice beige rug, and those glittering balls were shattered to pieces into the mud and water.

I was lucky to live to tell the story, and she decided that day to name me Troubles..

What can you do when your artificial tree gets ruined or you just can’t afford a tree?

Try going out into the woods and cut a full branch of limbs and spray them with artificial snow, and scatter glitter on them. It makes the most beautiful tree, and the cost is only the glitter and snow. Place it in a stable container and run lights over the branches and decorate.

That’s what my owner did, and she said it was the most beautiful Christmas Tree she ever had, thanks to me.
