Making a stick Christmas Tree is a very easy but effective craft project to undertake. A drill is required but materials should be either available free or at minimal cost.

An easy craft project to make a Christmas tree from sticks and twigs

Obviously the design can be scaled up or down to suit you needs and can have more branches if so desired. In the above example, the bottom branch is approx 15cm long.

Collect some sticks and cut your Christmas Tree 'branches'. Lay them out on a table and trim them until you are happy with the overall tree shape. Cut the tree trunk 'spacers' leaving one for the trunk base and one for the tip slightly longer.

Drill holes in the twigs and sticks

Drill a hole in the centre of the stick 'branches' and down the middle of all the trunk spacers.

The completed stick Christmas tree can be decorated or left as a natural decoration

Tie a big knot in the end of a piece of nice string or a thin ribbon and then thread on the parts of the tree. Only tie the loop at the top when you are sure everything is in order and no further 'adjustments' are required.

Variations on the above include painting the branches or a pva glue and glitter 'fall of snow' looks good.

Obviously drilling and cutting should only be done by suitably competent persons. If making in these decorations as a group craft activity, it is far better to collect, cut and drill the materials in advance; the assembly of the tree together with some creative ideas for decorating it can easily occupy the group!
