If you haven’t got space for the real (or faux!) thing, or simply want a smaller tree to run alongside the main event, our guide on how to make a Christmas tree decoration could be just the ticket. This decoration has a trendy, minimalist feel, making it perfect for window sills and dining tables. Simply add some battery-pack fairy lights, a few decorations and small baubles, and you’re well away! Watch the full video here, or follow our step-by-step guide below:
You will need…
6 large sticks
Hot glue gun
Pick out the longest, straightest stick of the bunch and lay it down on the table. This will be the spine of the tree.
Use the glue gun to attach the 5 remaining sticks (horizontally and evenly spaced) down the length of the spine. Leave to dry.
Stand your tree in the pot. Shovel the grit in around the base, compressing down with your hand afterwards.
Position your Christmas tree and add some decorations!
