Tumbleweed Tannenbaum

There aren’t fir trees a plenty in Chandler, Arizona, so the folks there get creative every year with an amazing tumbleweed tree. This 25-foot-tall tradition has been around since 1957. It features nearly 1,000 tumbleweeds, along with 25 gallons of white paint, 20 gallons of flame retardant, and about 65 pounds of glitter.
