cupcake linersI believe paper coasters will be easier to handle so I recommend using those if you have any
toothpicks for small trees and bamboo skewers for larger ones
hot glue - optional
polystyrene to display the trees
Make the cupcake liner as flat as possible.
Using your scissors, cut through the liner, stopping in the middle of the liner.
Overlap the ends to see where you need to apply glue.
Apply glue to the bottom end, place the other end over and lightly press. Allow to dry before moving to the next step.
Stick a toothpick or bamboo skewer through the middle of the liner.
Wrap a tiny elastic around the skewer and gently push until it meets the liner. The elastic will hold the liner in place and prevent it from sliding. If you want to be extra safe, apply a tiny drop of hot glue.
Continue until you're happy with the number of liners.
Stick the skewers to a polystyrene board to display.
