PAPER TREE TABLE CENTREPIECES
ONE Draw circles in pencil on card paper in the colour of your choice – use a compass or different sized cups to get 10 circles that increase in size (our smallest circle was 4cm diameter). TWO Cut each circle out with scissors.
THREE Take the largest circle and fold it in half, then rotate it 90 degrees and fold in half again.
FOUR Turn the circle shape over and fold in half diagonally to the previous folds. Rotate 90 degrees and fold again. FIVE You should now have an umbrella shaped piece of paper with four points. SIX Fold circle in half and punch a hole in the centre with single-hole punch.
SEVEN Insert a wooden dowel into a wooden bead or into a ball of clay and leave to dry. This will become the base of your tree.
EIGHT Thread the large circle onto the dowel, with the open umbrella side facing the base. Repeat steps three through six for the remaining circles and thread them onto the dowel in order of decreasing size.
