  • 3 or 4 Green pipe cleaners
  • 75 - 80 Various colored beads that can be strung

Directions

  1. Fold the brown pipe cleaner then twist the 2 ends from about an inch down to create a loop. This is where the tree will hang from so this is the top of the ornament.
  2. The green pipe cleaner will be the leaves of the tree. Cut the pieces to the desired length and twist the green pipe cleaner around the brown piper cleaner (the tree trunk). Remember the leaves should be longer at the bottom and gradually decrease in length toward the top of the tree.
  3. String beads on the green pipe cleaner leaving enough space at the end to fold over the pipe cleaner so the beads don't fall off.
