This little Christmas craft is featured in my book, Nature Crafts with Common Plants. It’s a really simple but fun (& cheap!) craft to do with a class or group of kids, or your own child. The trunk of the tree is a pop stick and I’ve collected some different sized twigs to use for branches. While you could use a larger twig as the trunk, the flatness of a pop stick makes it easier to stick the twig branches on. PVA or any other craft glue works fine. I’ve added a string so it can be hung up, and I’ve glued on a Crepe Myrtle pod as a star on top.
