This tree is old and I got it as a kind donation from a friend who was tossing it in the trash because of malfunctioning lights. No worries, I dug deep with my clippers and cut off every. single. wire. It took a good couple of hours, but if you have a tree that you love but the lights are ‘on the blink’, DO IT. Just toss on some new strands and the tree is good as new. But I digress…this one was also yellowed, so I spray painted it white. It’s sparse, so I grabbed a bag of quilt stuffing and stuffed it for a snow like effect. Ta daaa….a day’s worth of work for some extra snowy beauty.
