4. Paints and paint brush

5. Scissors, thread, cotton and ribbons.

6. Sweets, discarded bulbs and empty match boxes.

Step 1: Get a christmas tree or any other tree that resembles it. This is what was available to us.

Step 2: Cut coloured paper in strips and put them all around the tree.

Step 3: Paint the popcorns and then string them in a thread. You can also hang them individually.

Step 4: Create little gifts. Wrap the match boxes with coloured paper. Tie a bow with ribbons or wool.

Hang the sweets, boxes, popcorns with the help of thread. Use cotton to give the snowy effect. You can make stars out of paper and decorate them too.

This is how we think you can decorate the Chirstmas tree but if you have more ideas then go ahead with them and tell us too.
