Decorations - Single rings of 10 - 12 picots.

Tree Top - 2 more single rings stacked on top of each other

Branches - 10 to 12 straight pieces of thread.

To assemble glue one piece of thread from where the top will sit down to the middle of the truck. Arrange
other pieces of thread to radiate outward from the top point and glue down. Glue down the tree top rings.

Moving down the tree glue down the short line of rings about 1" from the top with the rings facing toward
the top. Moving down about 1.5" glue down the second row of rings with the tops facing downward.

Moving down to the end of the radiating branches, glue down the longest row of rings with the top facing
downward. Glue down the decorations randomly.

Suggestions:

Use gold metallic thread for the tree top.

Use a brownish green thread for the branches.

Use a dark brown or black for the trunk.

Use holiday colors for the decorations.

Add beads to everything!

Many thanks to the unknown tatter for this cute idea.
