I want one of these! Ok now to make one is a bit easier, 3 simple pieces of wood, you can even use yardsticks and any type of wood block base you have laying around to make it stand upright ..hot glue will do the trick! Below some other types of ornament trees. I might have to have a few :) crate and barrel and just throwing this out there I may actually attempt this giant hot glued ornament tree. Nothing required to use but a wood base of any kind so it will stand up and some hot glue to start building it. I will post photos of my interpretation of this cool addition to my home when it is complete along with my ornament trees :) and oh my goodness! the great hanging tree just fishing line and some ornaments with your imagination! Figuring out where to put the hanging points on the rack involved a bit of math, most all of which I abandoned. I’ll do my best to describe what I did. I decided to create rings on the rack, with the longer threads hanging on the outside rings to create the cone tree shape. Actually it creates tiers, think a tall skinny wedding cake. I figured that my ornaments were usually about 2 or 3 inches in diameter so I needed to space the rings a little more than 1 inch apart so that the ornaments would have room to hang without being crowded by the longer threads around them. I spaced the rings about 1.5 inches apart. This gave me a center point and 6 rings to work with, with the last ring being the outer edge of the rack, like above. I determined I wanted my tree to be about four feet in total height from the top ornament to the bottom. I made the first ornament, the center point, hang 3.5 inches, and added length from there. For my needs, each set of string needed to be 1.75 inches longer than the last. Each ring on the hanging rack held for different lengths of string. I added 2 inches to the length of string I actually cut to allow for the loops. To figure out how many ornaments per ring I, well, completely made it up. I decided the first ring should hold seven ornaments and went up by four from there. So the number of ornaments went: 1, 7, 11, 15, 19, 23, 27. I divided the four lengths of string between those, giving the longest length more ornaments to help the triangle effect. Whew. So I cut this many at these lengths for these rings:
