What do you need to make this Twig Christmas Tree?

Chances are you already have what you need to make these lovely trees! Head on a nature walk or right outside your backyard or local park to pick up some fallen branches and leaves. We show two ways to build a tree, by layering branches from large to small sizes, and a classic triangle tree shape. But the tree design is up to you! Next, the fun part is to look inside your craft stash or pick up random crafty bits and bobs like ribbons, buttons, twine and pom poms to create a lovely loose parts array to start making your nature trees!

What can you make with this Nature Christmas Tree Craft? 

We think they make lovely mini trees as holiday decor around the home. But another option is to tie a loop of ribbon around and create Christmas tree ornaments! You can also make them smaller and attach them on top of presents as gift-wrap toppers.
