WHAT YOU WILL NEED
Note: Ensure that you have enough tinsel and wood to cut into correct lengths.
STEP ONE: Cut the tinsel to the following sizes: 0.1m, 0.2m, 0.3m, 0.4m, 0.5m, 0.6m, 0.7m, 0.8m, 0.9m, 1.0m, 1.1m, 1.2m, 1.3m, 1.4m, 1.5m
STEP TWO: Use paint brush and paint all around the tinsel. Use a long brush or sponge to get into all the grooves of the tinsel.
STEP THREE: Hang the tinsel to dry over night.
STEP FOUR: Once dry, use the hot glue gun and put drops of glue along the thinner edge of the piece of wood, pressing down the tinsel against the glue as you go.
STEP FIVE: Leave to dry.
STEP SIX: Lay out the Christmas tree onto the floor in order. Stick double sided tape onto the backside of the pieces of wood.
STEP SEVEN: To stick onto the wall - start from the bottom up pushing firmly down onto the wall to ensure it is stuck down. Leave 10-15cm between each plank of wood depending how tall you would like it to be!
