Your Christmas Tree can be a favour, a decoration, or a cheery note on breakfast tray.
Miniature Christmas Tree
- Small size pine cone with open petals
- green or white color paints
- pointed shells
- small sea stars
- three lengths of heavy thread about five inches long
- Elmer’s muli-purpose glue
- Paper towel
- Waxed paper or cellophane
Choose a small pine cone with open petals. Use a pointed shell or a small sea star for the top ornament. At the beginning you can to paint your pine cone with green or white paints and leave it dry for several minutes.
Glue small pointed shells so that they hang down from the edge of the petals like icicles.
To make the garlands, use three lengths of heavy thread about five inches long, and put them flat on a piece waxed paper. Holding a small shell with tweezers, dip it in the glue, and put it on the thread. Repeat until you have pasted the shells at intervals along each piece of thread. When the glue dries, you can pull the threads with shells attached of the waxed paper or cellophane and drape them around the tree. Glue other tiny shells on the petals. Use any of the proper size of wood as a base, and glue the decorated tree.
