- metallic pipe cleaners
- glass beads
- tacky glue
- utility knife
- a cork
- washi tape
Form a small loop at one end of a 4-inch length of metallic pipe cleaner. This will be the top of the tree.
Make branches by wrapping six to eight 2-inch lengths of pipe cleaner around the trunk, then trim them so that the branches at the top are narrower.
Adhere a glass bead to the end of each branch with a dab of tacky glue.
Use a utility knife to cut a cork to the width of washi tape (an adult’s job) and wrap the tape around the cork.
Make a hole in the cork with a pushpin, then glue the tree trunk in the hole and allow it to dry.
Add a length of string for hanging the trees.
