Christmas Tree Card Holder Assembly

  1. Lay out the branches with the largest one on the bottom and the smallest on the top.
  2. Add the twine. Start by tying a knot on the bottom left side and wrap it around the branch twice. Then move up to the next branch and wrap it around the branch twice, continue this on each branch. When you get to the top, make a large triangle and tie a not leaving a loop at the top for hanging. Add a star or bow at the top!
  3. Continue the twine back down the branches wrapping around each branch twice until you get to the bottom branch. Tie a knot on the bottom branch.
  4. Add a strand of twine along each branch going from the left to right to hang the cards.
  5. Clip clothes pins and add cards as they arrive.
