Step

Step 1:

Take a pipe cleaner, we've used a nice forest green but you can use any colour you like to brighten up your Christmas tree. Next, bend the pipe cleaner into a cone shape - you can use a conical mould - like an ice cream cone - for this if it helps!
Step

Step 2:

Take the craft foam and cut out two large circles and 6 small circles. This will make the base for your Mini Christmas Tree. NOTE: you can use any coloured foam and experiment with other shapes, if you like.
Step

Step 3:

Take the circle that have been cut from the craft foam and stack them. Starting with one of the large circles, glue each smaller circle on top of one another and then finish by gluing the second large circle on top.
Step

Step 4:

The next step is to glue your pipe cleaner cone to the foam stand - place a small amount of glue on the bottom coil of your pipe cleaner - be careful not to use too much because it can be a bit messy!
Step

Step 5:

Now it's time to decorate your Mini Christmas Tree! You can do this any way that you like - we took a piece of yellow craft foam and cut a star out to glue to the top of the tree. We also decorated with some mini craft pom poms in festive colours.

Step 6:

There you have it, your Mini Christmas Tree is finished! Now you can create your own mini christmas forest!
