Introduction: How to Make Christmas Trees
Step 1: Watch This Video Guide
What you need:
Desk Top Tree
A sheet of card or paper
A selection of sticks
Ribbon or string
Start by cutting the end off a cork.
Then poke a toothpick into the middle like this.
Next cut out a number of circles from the tissue paper and put them in size order.
Then thread the paper onto the toothpick spine. Screw the paper up a bit first to stop the tree looking too flat and uniform.
Finally add the Christmas Star.
Roll up a piece of paper or card into a cone and fix it with tape.
Take a 5" strip of wrapping paper, curl it around and tape the ends together, then slice the paper through the curl as shown.
Wrap the paper around the cone and tape it on. Do this in layers all the way up the cone.
Keep going until you get to the top then add a Christmas star.
Take a pile of sticks and cut them to length so you can arrange a tree formation like this.
Bind the sticks together with ribbon
Decorate the tree.
