My husband and I have started an unconventional Christmas tree tradition. With half this year gone we're already trying to plan for this year's! This past year we based our tree on a popular paper bag craft I saw on Pinterest where you twist and cut the ends to create branches. Instead of a miniature paper bag tree I suggested we built a giant paper bag out of Kraft paper and create a life size version.

Stop looking at Tanya, the tree's the subject here! A segment on Home and Family last week became a fun creative challenge for me. One of our show's "family" regulars, Tanya Memme, was to DIY tapping a maple tree for sap that then you can later turn into syrup. Tapping a maple tree is actually easy to do, finding a maple tree to tap for a TV show set in Los Angeles is not. Our Universal Studios location did not have one, and finding a mature tree to bring on set from elsewhere was impossible…

The 10 foot tree build began with the trunk. I was able to get most of what I needed from my local OSH Hardware. I decided it would be 7 feet high, leaving room for another 3 feet or so of branches. I used 12 inch wide concrete form tubes. The ones in stock were only 4 feet high so I needed two (cutting one down to 3 feet high). I glued and screwed four 1x2 furring strips inside the first tube. These act as ribs reinforcing the trunk and also became where I added shelf brackets securing it…
