Step 1

Take the cotton swab…

Step 2

Cut a piece of stick – as long as you want the strain to be.

Like this.

Apply a bit of glue on one end of the strain…

… and stick it to the cotton tip, on the other end. Like this. Now it looks like a tree.


Step 3

Paint the cotton part in green.


Step 4

Using your scissors make some cuts…

Add more cuts. They are tree branches.


Step 5

Adorn it with glitter glue, then let it dry.

This is our tree.


Step 6

Now is time to fix the strain, using this square bead.

Apply a bit of glue on the strain end…

… and put it through the bead. Add a little more glue around it, just to be sure.


Step 7

Let’s decorate the top of the tree!

Apply glue on the top…

… and put it in gold glitter…

… like this.


Step 8

Use tweezers to gently grasp the top.

Add a layer of glue on the bottom of square bead…

… and put it through the opening of the globe (take the hanger off before that)…

… like this.


Step 9

Make a paper funnel (a paper cone)…

… and put it on the opening of the globe.

Pour sugar through it…

… like this.

Put the hanger back. Now you have a globe with a winter tree and snow.
