Discy Christmas

Randommmmness in 3...2...1...

So me and my girlfriend are kind of low on finances this year and this would be our first year that we need to buy a christmas tree, decorations, ornaments, lights...$$$$$. So while sitting here on the vast interwebs I found some one who made a christmas tree out of books (see attachment) which cuts out that 40$ tree instantly. My next thought automatically was DISC GOLF TREEEEEE. Perfect right? Nowww my problem is figuring how to construct this "tree" stack the discs? We probably have about 100. or hang the discs on nails flat on the wall in a tree shape with lights on it too? I could even cut out a 6ft christmas tree shape from green poster board and use the discs as ornaments Im looking for some sweet AND CHEAP suggestions. If i do this right i should only have to spend about 5 bucks for some lights to string around the discs lol.

If anyone has any disc/christmas ideas post them in here! I'd love to see them.

Thanks!

kind of what i mean by on the wall

That's pretty sweet! I don't really have many ideas for you, but I must say I wish you luck! Whatever you decide to do please make sure you post pictures of it!

I know that someone has posted a pic in the past of there practice basket being the tree and decorated with lights and mini's as the ordainments. It's a thought if you have a basket.

scrap wood terrace style, longest board on the bottom, progressively smaller as you build up, covered with discs and minis?

Yeah that's exactly what I'm thinking. But you could experiment with nails to get more a leaf feel. Like lay discs on side being held up by nails. Even on the ends of the wood put nails like / and hang the discs going sideways. But again this does require wood and nails. Good luck and if I rack up enough mini's I may do a smaller scale of this!

We just ripped apart a deck today, so we've got a bunch of splintered garbage wood that I bet you could get artistic with. So if you want to come to WI and pick it up..

Or I guess the point is that there's probably a project going on somewhere locally, if you search hard enough someone has the perfect pile of 'garbage' that you could sculpt into the base level of a tree.

You say you have a hundred discs. Sell a bunch of them in the marketplace and then you can buy a nice tree or a nice gift.
