Cotton Reel Christmas Tree


 Cotton Reel Christmas Tree by Kate Beavis

Create a piece of festive art with an old picture frame, some chicken wire and a colourful collection of cotton reels, making a great alternative to a wreath.

‘Once Christmas is over, you can remove all the cotton reels, then use the wire frame to peg letters and photos to throughout the year,’ says Kate.
