Step 2: Color The Corks

I let my son color all of the corks using his favorite eco-friendly markers. He choose a selection of fun colors and colored one end of each of the corks.

Step 3: Arrange The Corks

Take a few minutes to arrange the corks into a Christmas tree shape, alternating the colors so that the design is aesthetically pleasing.

Step 5: Add A Loop of Bakers Twine

Cut a few inches of bakers twine and tie it into a loop. Glue the loop of twine to the top of the tree, then glue the top cork onto the tree.
