How to Make a Wire Christmas Tree

Did you ever buy something from the thrift store 
and not know what it was?

How to Make a Wire Christmas Tree.

Well, that was the case when I bought this "wire thingy" for $1.00 at the thrift store.

I read the directions when I got home and found out it could be put together to make a Christmas Tree.  

A Christmas tree? Really?

It was only $1.00 so I gave it a try, surely I could make something out of it if it didn't look like a tree.

Ok so far, kind of Christmas Tree like but what do you do with this now?
