Yarn and cardboard are what you need

Manufacturing process

  • On a thick cardboard draw the workpiece. The size will depend on your preferences. I recommend making the height of the product about 20 cm. The blank is an isosceles triangle, drawn with a ruler in two copies.

Draw the blank

  • In the middle of each blank it is necessary to draw a straight line exactly to the middle of the product. Cut two triangles - they should be identical. In the center of each billet with scissors, cut the intended strip exactly to the middle: one billet should be cut from the bottom, the other - from the top.

Cut out triangles

  • Connect the workpiece by inserting one part into another. Check the product for stability by placing it on a flat surface. If it does not stand exactly - it is necessary to carefully trim the bottom.

We insert one part of the Christmas tree into another

  • Next, take the thread of your favorite color and circle the billet in a circle, starting from the bottom. For reliability, you can use the PVA glue, securing the beginning and end of the thread. A little time and the simplest tree is ready.

Starting from the bottom, wrap the workpiece in a circle.

To decorate the Christmas crafts, turn on the fantasy: I used ready-made beads, which are sold in the store in the New Year's decor department. You can fasten them with the help of thread, needles, starting to wrap a spruce from above.
