Decide on how high you want your trees to be and how many "branches" and cut the plywood according to your measurements. I wanted to have a small tree and a medium one and cut 5 and 6 strips of plywood.
Arrange your "trees" and decide how long the wood strip that'll hold the "branches" will be and cut by your measurements.
Cut fabric the width and height of your plywood pieces, using your pinking sheers. This will not only stop the fabric from fraying but it adds a bit of interest too.
Use your glue gun to attach the plywood strips (the branches) to your wood strip (the trunk). I tried using my drill but the trunk almost broke so I decided to use my glue gun. I applied glue on the wood strip, then immediately pressed the plywood so that the glue sits in the middle of the plywood; this will give it a stronger hold.
Spread glue on plywood and immediately attach the fabric strips (don't be lazy as me and iron your fabric first). Do one plywood strip at a time. Leave to completely dry.
Spray some glitter directly on the fabric. Leave to dry.
That's it! You've got yourself a pretty fabric covered Christmas tree in no time! I am personally more pleased with the smaller tree, I think it's cuter than the larger one and the branches look more put together.
