You’ll need

twigs from the gar­den – the kids can have fun help­ing with this string wood glue dec­o­ra­tions (for this theme, use small fig­urines, pine cones and a rus­tic star) 1 Or­gan­ise the twigs by size into a long tri­an­gle – long­est twig at the bot­tom, short­est at the top. 2 Tie string down the sides of the Christ­mas tree, con­nect­ing all the twigs. Loop the string around each twig and tie a knot as you go. This will hold them in place and keep the tree shape (see pic). 3 Add a blob of glue to each fig­urine and pine cone and ar­range them on the tree. 4 Once you’re done dec­o­rat­ing, tie a loop of string to the top branch and hang the tree on a hook. Hide the hook with the star.
