Computer Junk Christmas Tree

Posted by on 19 Dec 2006 | Tagged as: Ideas, Projects

Here is a Christmas tree decorated with old computer junk. I made the decorations with several of my students 4 or 5 years ago. We set it up in our computer lab every year after Thanksgiving. It fits in real well with all the computers and the students seem to get a kick out of it each year (especially the new students.)

My favorite part is the garland. We made it from keys off of old computer keyboards. We pryed the keys off and then drilled a hole through each one and strung them on a string (this is time consuming and is what I refer to as a “good student job.”)

Let me know what you think. Also, show us what you have done for a uniquely decorated Christmas tree.
