Easy Glass Gem Christmas Tree How To


If you are looking for an easy craft, this one just might be it!

You will need:

-  3 popsicle sticks
-  Glue - I used hot glue, but you could use a Tacky Glue or Weldbond
-  Green acrylic paint
-  Green floral gems/stones - If you can't find green, paint the backside with paint or nail polish!
-  1 small jingle bell
-  Red ribbon

Here is the video tutorial:



Directions:
1.  You will leave one popsicle stick at its original length.  The cut down the other three so one is smaller than the next.
2.  Paint the popsicle sticks green and let dry.
3.  Glue the popsicle sticks together, with the regular size stick being vertical and the other three going horizontal.  Put the largest at the bottom and the smallest at the top.  Use a stone/gem to help get the spacing right.
4.  Glue on your gems.
5.  Glue the jingle bell to the top.
6.  Glue a loop of ribbon to the back.

If you are using hot glue, it will cool quickly.  If you are using a different glue, it will take longer and you might want to leave it overnight.

That's it!  Hang it up and enjoy it!  Happy Crafting and Happy Holidays!
