Make Your Tree
We worked from the bottom up, starting with the 24x36 rolled branches. Each quadrant had six branches that were bent together at the tip and secured with tape. We used hot glue to secure above the bottom shelf and fanned out to fill the quadrant. Fuller rolls were used at the bottom and tighter rolls as we went higher. We ended up with six rows of 24x36 and three rows of 11x17 and one row of 8.5x11. For the top two rows, we created a small cap out of 11x17 paper to help the paper fan out and have a surface for gluing.
And that’s it – the key is to fluff your rolled branches to make them look full. You can also add in additional rolls as needed to extra fluff to your tree.
