DIY Adorable stick Christmas tree

You will need:
a few twigs
handsaw
drill with small bit
ribbon
scissors
large needle
sandpaper
liquid acrylic paints (optional)
1. Using the handsaw, cut your twigs into progressively smaller pieces. No need to be exact. Trust yourself and just wing it. Also cut several stubby bead-like pieces for the branch spacers.
2. Place them as in Photo #2 to make sure they all look good together. Trim any pieces that may be too long.
3. With the drill, drill holes into the centers of the twigs. Try to find the center of balance of each piece before you drill to ensure that both sides are balanced. For the bottom-most trunk piece, drill a hole down into the heart of the piece.
4. Sand all the ends with fine sandpaper.
