How to make a Vintage Hankie and chicken wire Christmas tree

Today's "stash craft" features my collection of vintage hankies displayed on a cone of chicken wire to form a Christmas tree. It was so easy to make and will be easy to take down.

I wrapped the chicken wire into a cone shape and secured it with binder clips. The cut ends I bent back onto the overlapped areas of chicken wire to further secure.
Then all that is left to do is gather each hankie by the center and poke it into the spaces starting at the bottom and working up to the top point.
I clipped a dove onto the top of the Christmas tree with a hankie covering all the chicken wire.

When Christmas is over you can simply disassemble and use your vintage hankies for another project.
