Step 2: Paper Strips

Strip paper into various lengths.

Apply glue to one side of the paper.

Twist the strip of paper.

Step 3: Roots

Use glue to attach one end of the twist to another.

Step 4: Tree Trunk

Cut wider strips of paper.

Place glue on one side of the paper and twist.

For thicker and denser tree trunks, repeat the steps by placing a twisted piece inside another.

Coil thinner twists around the tree trunk to create bark layers and girth.

Repeat the steps for the tree roots.

Attach them to the top of the trunk.

Add more twists to create fuller branches.
