    Start with the Christmas Tree Star

    Holiday Craft Tree Star

    You can start your wood craft tree construction by making the star that will sit atop the miniature Christmas tree.

    As the image illustrates, first glue the wooden star shapes back to back onto the end of a toothpick.

    Then paint the wood stars, and add glitter if you want.

    Finally, stick the shiny plastic stars onto the center of the wood shape stars.



    Holiday Craft Miniature Tree with Snow

    Add a Coat of Snow to the Miniature Christmas Tree

    Next, add a coat of Delta Snow or other snow paint to the miniature Christmas tree. Don't get it on the base.

    In this image, the base has already been painted red.



    Finished Holiday Craft Miniature Christmas Tree

    Finish the Wood Craft Miniature Christmas Tree Ornament

    Make a loop from the twine or ribbon.

    Break off some of the toothpick so that it can be inserted deep enough into the hole on top the tree to have the star flush with the top.

    Put glue on the bottom end of the toothpick, and use it to push the ribbon or twine ends into the hole atop the miniature Christmas tree.

    Push the toothpick down so that the star sits just above the top of the tree.

    Paint the snow covered miniature tree green.

    Glue the colored sequins around the tree to finish its own decoration.

    Now your wood craft miniature is ready to help embellish your full-sized Christmas Tree.
