Hi there! Here is a little tutorial to make
little Christmas trees with
chenille stems and wooden spools.
You'll need green bump chenille stems,
brown chenille stems,
and wooden spools.
Fold the brown stem in half
and twist the ends together.
Cut the green stems into sections of two bumps.
Wind the bump sections around the brown stem.
As you work your way up the stem,
wrap the green piece around an extra time
to make the branches shorter.
By the time you get to the top of the tree
you will be wrapping around about 5 times.
Before you wrap the last branch section around the tree,
cut a separate bump for the top and
wrap the last section around it to hold it in place.
Then you simply insert into a wooden spool!
You can wrap ribbon round the spool if you like,
or you could skip the spool and use them
as adornments on packages.
I also think they would be cute to leave up year round
especially if you leave the spools plain.
Bye for now!
