Tie your fabric strips to a stick until you like the way it looks.
Attach the ornament hook to the top of the tree by twisting it tight.
Ask a grown-up to help you trim your fabric with scissors to make a tree shape.
Use ribbon to tie a bow around the top of your tree.
Tear off a strip of Zots and lay it on the table with the sticky side facing up. Press a sequin onto each sticky dot to make a sheet of sequin stickers. Peel off sequin stickers and stick to your tree.
Ask a grown-up to take the trees outside to spray them with Glitter Dust spray. Let them dry.
