This Outdoor-ChristmasTree is easy to make in less than one hour. These lighted Outdoor decorations can be duplicated to fill in any themed area. I use them in my winter scene, make them out of white fabric and put blue as well as white lights underneath.
These Christmas yard decorations have great versatility. They can be made for any color fabric and that fabric color brightened by adding the same color light or white lights can be added for a more subtle color.
The parts are readily available in any local hardware store which makes them easy to replace should any piece break. They go up quickly and fold down flat for easy storage.
The electrical connections can be hide under the costume to help protect them from water and the winter elements.
Materials for your Outdoor-ChristmasTree Yard Decoration
1 yard fabric (your chose of color) best fabric is cotton/polly. Hold fabric up to light in store and if you can readily see the light through it, the fabric should work.
60 inches for #8 wire
White Duck tape
On a continuous sheet of paper, tissue or paper you have taped together to make at least 14 inch wide and 32 inches long; measure and mark 31 inches up from the bottom of the paper in two places; draw the top line.
On the top line mark 14 inches and on the bottom line mark 14 inches. On the top 14 inches, mark the middle and 1 inch on either side of the middle. This outer mark is the outside edge of your fabric.
On the bottom, mark one inch up from the edge. Draw a line from the bottom mark to the top mark to form a triangle with flat top.
