Here are some simple ideas and guidelines to help you prepare your tree for our Christmas Tree Forest.
Previous tree Awamutu Examples:
- a large tree that included cans of food (which were donated)
- a tree with handprints of children at a local school
- a ladder containing technology
- a pyramid of (new) nappies in boxes (which were donated)
- car parts welded together to form a tree
The key aim of your tree should be to represent who you are and what Christmas means to you.
- Your tree should be contained in an area no greater than 1.5 sqm.
- You are only limited by your imagination as far as how crazy you want to go.
- Try and contain a message in the presentation of your tree – the more subtle the better.
- Think about engaging the public with intrigue… but be aware that small children will be looking and touching!
- Power will be available for lighting (within moderation). Please bring your own multi-board and extension lead.
- The public will be voting for the Top Three Trees – think how you might win their vote!
