Step 1: WHAT YOU NEED??
Step 2: MAKING THE BASE
Cut a circle of cardboard.
at the middle of this cardboard you have to stick the cardboard roll, so in order to do that mark the radius of the roll on the cardboard and put a slit over the marked region.
then fix the roll onto the slit.
this will be the main base of our stand.
Step 3: MAKING HANDS
mark two points on the roll opposite to each other.
make two holes on the cardboard roll on the marked points
pass a wire from the holes.
this wire will form the hands of the stand or the spooky tree.
Step 4: COVERING THE HANDS
cover the wire with the strips of newspaper to make them steady.
while covering the hands make sure that you leave some portion uncover so that you will be able to fit the bottle caps.
Step 5: PREPARATION
