You will need:


wooden thread spools

  1. Cut out triangular shapes from the green paper. Start with small on top and bigger on the bottom so that they have a tree shape.
  2. Hot glue in place.
  3. Hot glue the spools to each other.
  4. Cut out stars and glue to the rods.
  5. Hot glue the rod to the spools.
