Last year around holiday time I saw some really different trees in a couple of magazines. They were made out of funnels. I thought they were pretty cute so I started my quest to find some. A lot harder than you'd think and a little on the spendy side ($3-$6). I didn't find any as big as I wanted either. Who knew they were so rare...either that or everyone saw they same magazines and were on the lookout too.
Here are my completed trees and they fit right in with my other kitchen decor. Feel free to use this idea and happy hunting.
