Think Outside the Box: Unlimited Sculpture (more than 5 boxes)
Danbury HOSA (Future Health Professionals) ClubHand-Crafted Decorations
This tree was created by Danbury High School’s HOSA (Future Health Professionals) Club. We wanted to create a sustainable Christmas tree out of recycled material everyone has lying around at home, which includes bottle caps, metal lids, old CDs, wine corks and old light bulbs. We built the tree with wood, cardboard, ribbon and popsicle sticks: the base of the tree and the rod in the middle are made of wood and the rings around the rod are cut from cardboard. The cardboard rings are attached together with ribbon and there are glued popsicle sticks along the outer edge so that we would be able to hang ornaments. This project was significant to us because every year our club decorates a tree for Ann’s Place and we did not want to let COVID stop us from doing the same this year. Not only that, but this tree gave our club the opportunity to work together and create a project that is bettering our community. We hosted a drive by at our school for members to hang their ornaments onto the tree; it was really nice getting to see everyone in person. This project it showed us the power of community even virtually.
