Heres what you need:


- Dowels (bought from the dollar store)

- Hot Glue Gun & Hot Glue

Step number ONE:

-Hot glue a line down the middle and wrap with yarn.


Step number THREE:

-Make tassels for the bottom and hot glue them on!






Tree #2:


Step number ONE:

- frame a tree outline with your dowels, hot glueing them together


Step number TWO:

- add your hot glue to the outline and place your fabric, once cooled, cut along the edges, you don't need it to be a perfect edge, it gives it a rustic look!

Step number THREE:

- wrap wire around the top of the tree about 3 times, hang one tassel

Step number FOUR:

- under the top tassel, wire wrap about 3 more times, and hang 2 tassels, continue to do this till your tree is covered


Tree #5:


Step number ONE:

- hot glue the dowel to the back of your wooden banner


Step number TWO:

- hot glue your fabric to the wooden banner, (wrapping it around the back)


TO ADD FLARE: fringe the bottom of your tree!








TO ASSEMBLE THE FOREST:

Drill 5 holes into your base (pick a bit that matches the size of your dowel)

Add hot glue to the holes and place your trees inside!


You now have your tree forest!!! This is a great display for the winter season!
