You can build such a tree with your child in just 30 minutes. Any kid will easily collect accordion blanks for the Christmas tree, and parents will help to fasten and string them on a stick.

It is worth saying the following about the process of assembling a Christmas tree. Barbecue stick is set in a glass or pot. It is fixed in various ways. Plaster, polyurethane foam, pebbles, cereals, sand, paper. Specifically, in this master class a cup-candlestick was used. It is all filled with wax and therefore there were no problems with fixing the trunk of the spruce.

The floors ate on a stick without glue, since the blanks from corrugated paper are well bonded to each other in a circle. And very tightly strung on a barbecue stick. If you are afraid of the design of the spruce, then you can drip the glue and fix the position of the floors with it.
