I found a flat wooden tree discarded in the streets.
It was plain, unvarnished wood, and was missing
I washed it, removed the pegs, polished it, painted it
with acrylic paint.
Then I tried my best to find wooden pegs in shops
in the shape of lemons that would fit on my tree,
(I would even have taken any fruit !!) but no matter
how hard I tried, I could never find any.
So I decided to make some, with polymer clay.
Polymer clay is soft, and easy to shape, but becomes
very hard and resistant once it's been baked.
I know this material very well because I work a lot
with it when i make my jewels (see my other shop,
TheSausage on Etsy).
So I shaped my six lemons, and planted in them
some long enough screws, baked them and there
you go !! They were ready to assemble.
Now my tree is one of its kind, and you won't find
the like of it in a furniture shop !! It's all refurbished and
The tree must be fixed on a wall and there are some
holes at the back for hooks to hold it.
It is approximately one meter high, and 75 cm at the
The coats or clothes are hung
onto the lemons. They hold! it even works for adults'
However I imagined this tree for a child's bedroom.
And my reward... delicious lemon juice, as it is summer
and 28°C in Paris today !!
