A Gumtree Christmas

Like it?  It took a few false starts, but I think I eventually got it right.  What do you think?

While sweltering in the 35 degree 90% humidity, I have thought hanging snowflakes and decorating the house like it's winter may be a little ridiculous.  So I wracked my brains wondering how to make our home a more summery Christmas.  Of course using Gumtree sticks to make a Christmas tree is a perfect answer.  After trialling yarn and and various wire techniques I ended up twisting a piece of wire around each individual stick and making a hook on one side and a loop on the other.  It was then just a matter of hooking each stick to each other.
