Punched Tin Holiday Tree

Punched Tin Christmas Tree

Despite glaring imperfections, I am happy to have this punched tin tree finally joining all the others in my tree collection.

It was Muse's idea to use one of my punched tin light shields as the topper. I thought she was crazy, but ... it works! One must always trust Muses. They know stuff.

This is not really a proper tutorial, but more of a guide for anyone wanting to create a similar tree.
