A cork
A toothpick
Tissue paper

Centerpiece Tree

A sheet of card or paper
Wrapping paper
A star

Stick Tree
A selection of sticks
Ribbon or string
Christmas decorations

Step 2:

Start by cutting the end off a cork.

Step 3:

Then poke a toothpick into the middle like this.

Step 4:

Next cut out a number of circles from the tissue paper and put them in size order.

Step 5:

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.

Step 8:

Take a 5" strip of wrapping paper, curl it around and tape the ends together, then slice the paper through the curl as shown.

Step 9:

Wrap the paper around the cone and tape it on. Do this in layers all the way up the cone.

Step 10:

Keep going until you get to the top then add a Christmas star.

Step 11:

Take a pile of sticks and cut them to length so you can arrange a tree formation like this.

Step 12:

Bind the sticks together with ribbon

Step 13:

Decorate the tree.

    I love them all and I probably will made the first one as I have all the stuff at home: cork, paper and toothpick. Will just just add a different topper (I do not think that I have star here).
