  1. Create the tree by laying out five pieces of twigs on a flat surface; one is the trunk, second is the base of the tree, the third and fourth are the sides and the fifth is the center.
  2. After you have the shape desired, place a dab of hot glue where the twigs touch each other.
  3. When the glue is dry insert dry floral foam into the container then insert the tree into the foam (trunk first).
  4. Glue some moss to cover the foam and you are done!

Happy Holidays and Happy Crafting!
