How to Make

  1. Take a sheet of white card and twist it around itself to create a cone. Hold the cone in place using tape, then cut off the bottom section to make it level.
  2. Wrap the cone in clingfilm, then fill a bowl with two parts PVA glue and one part water and mix it together.
  3. Unravel the green embroidery thread and cut it in half. Then dip one half into the glue mixture.
  4. Wrap the embroidery thread around the cone, starting from the bottom and working your way upwards. Make sure the thread overlaps itself.
  5. Repeat step 4 with the other half of the green embroidery thread.
  6. Leave the tree to dry overnight.
  7. Once the thread has dried, carefully take it off of the cone. Then stick bauble stickers onto the tree and a yellow star on top.

Top Tip

Make sure the cone is fully wrapped in clingfilm to prevent the glue sticking to the card.
