May I Pinterest you in a Christmas Craft Idea?

I was lucky enough to spend an afternoon with some girlfriends creating a few christmas crafts, and this geometric cage was definitely my favourite. It’s a very popular design in many homewares stores (think Anthropologie, West Elm, or Chapters) but can easily be made for much cheaper and to your own specifications.

It was time consuming cutting the copper tubes using a manual tube cutter, but a quicker method is to use pliers to break off each length of tube and then press the pliers to then re-open the pressed edge so you can string wire through to make your shape.

I just have mine on my bedside table, but they can also be hung in the air to hold plants or crystals like the video below demonstrates.

Happy Crafting!
