My First Craft Tree
I have made lots of things with cardboard tubes over the years, but have never tried a tree. We had lots of long cardboard tubes left over at the holidays, [ the ones inside rolls of wrapping paper] that gave me a good length of tube to start with.
The branches, I cut from the cardboard tube as well. Slots cut into the tree trunk helped to slide the branches in. I attached some cardboard to the bottom to make it easier to stand. It took a while but the end result worked !
