HOW TO TRIM YOUR TREE

Better Homes and Gardens (Australia) - - Paper Craft -

• Golden rule – add the lights first, dis­tribut­ing them evenly over the tree.

• Use your free pa­per to make sim­ple de­cos: birds, stars, hearts, or what­ever shapes you fancy. Mix and match the de­signs and string each on a loop of co­or­di­nat­ing rib­bon – red will make a green tree sing!

• With your pa­per colours as a guide, choose pur­chased baubles in var­i­ous sizes and solid colours – in­clud­ing gold, for a touch of bling – to add to the display. Don’t stint here; they needn’t be ex­pen­sive, but try to fill up the spa­ces be­tween your pa­per de­cos. When in doubt, add an­other one!

• Pop a pa­per star on top (see page 188), co­or­di­nat­ing pressies be­low, and then stand back and admire! ■
