We Made A Floating Christmas Tree From Reflective Foam Insulation, And Here’s The Result

Every year my husband and I create our own Christmas tree from random materials. This year our tree floats! We used reflective foam insulation to create 3d snowflakes in different sizes. Because the fabric was so light, we were able to hang the entire thing from the ceiling with a fishing line and a few nail hooks. Luckily in the dark, the fishing line is barely visible. Here’s how it turned out:
