Week 04 (Day 05): Christmas Tree Variation

This Christmas tree variation is based on the Spiky Christmas tree. It looks the same as this tree but the variation is that this one does not require any glue to hold it together.

Printer paper works fine [Continued..]

The base is made slightly different from [Continued..]
