Hello everybody! Another Christmas is coming and nothing better than celebrating with family, right?

Today I will share an idea that we had to decorate our table.

It is very simple because it uses materials that are easily discarded.

Step 1: Materials

- Pieces of cardboard

- 6 sheets of A4 paper

- Layout drawings

- White glue and hot glue

- Paints (red, green and yellow)

- Ornaments to hang on the tree

- Stones to make weight at the bottom

- Olhoes (12) however can make a simple hole with paper punch.

- Scissors, ruler, etc. ...

Step 2: Assembling the Tree

I printed the layout of the tree in 4 sheets of A4 paper, using the printer feature in poster printing. After that, I gathered the sheets of paper and pasted on cardboard. All it took was cut and then paint.

After the paint dries, the two parties unite to form the tree.

Step 3: Mounting the base

The base I made in the shape of a vase. I did not plan the layout so it was lopsided. To stand up, I put a little stone and closed. The star was glued on top.

Step 4: Decorating the tree

I made holes with an awl to hold the decorations. I filled each hole with a illion. After that, it was enough to hang the ornaments chocolate.
Also print some Christmas figures, cut out and pasted on the tree.

Hope you enjoy
Punching holes to hang ornaments was a great idea! Very cute tree :)
