Twisted strands (make 1 in each of 4 sizes)
Using variegated green crochet cotton, make 20 ch. Work 1 dc (UKtr) into 3rd ch from hook, then 3 dc (UKtr) into each ch to end. The crochet will twist as you work. Fasten off. Repeat the process starting with 28 ch, 30 ch and 36 ch.
To make up
Work in all the ends. Stuff the tree quite firmly then attach the base, inverting it slightly to enable the tree to stand. Take each twisted strand and sew the ends together to form a circle. Place the circles on the tree in size order, starting with the largest at the base. Sew in place. Wrap some tinsel around the tree, securing it with a little craft glue or stitches. Glue the tinsel balls on to the branches at random. Cut the cocktail stick in half. Place a little glue on one side of a star and press the other star on to it, sandwiching half the cocktail stick in between. Press firmly until well stuck. Push the cocktail stick down into the top of the tree, securing it with a little glue.
