As you may see, I’ve lower the candles. This was accomplished proper round July 4th of this yr.

Fall 2021 – Earlier than Pulling Needles

Just lately, I introduced the tree into the workshop for fall work. Right here is the tree earlier than I began pulling needles. Along with pulling previous needles, I’ll reduce to 2 candles of equal power.

This can be a nice time to take off previous wire and rewire as wanted. As you may see, I’ve added new wire (copper colour) subsequent to the aged wire (chocolate brown colour).

Right here is the tree after fall work and a few new wire. I added some moss, it’s in spite of everything, our birthday! I like how this tree is gaining ramification and element slowly annually. I’d give this a tree a yr of relaxation from candle slicing. I do not wish to put an excessive amount of stress on the tree. A yr of leisure would possibly do it effectively.
