Technology of work
If you decide to make a tree with your own hands from tree branches, then first you need to prepare corrugated paper, from which several strips are made. Their width will determine the size of the colors. The article considers an example that involves the use of strips of different widths. It in this case varies from 1 to 2 cm.

Alternatively, rosettes can be mounted on a ball. It, in turn, can be glued to a natural branch. The ball can be made from ordinary threads twisted into a ball. After the ball can be fixed on the branch, which can be done with super-glue and adhesive tape, you can begin to strengthen the roses to the ball. As soon as all the elements are strengthened, you can add a number of leaves, which are strengthened in random order. Now the tree needs to be planted in a pot, which is often replaced by an old cup. Last of all, you need to fill in gypsum, and then dilute everything with water.
