1. First make the basis for our tree. Take 4 sheets of newspaper and make such a ball.

Wind the ball round with threads and grease with glue so that it should not break down.

2. Now we`ll make white and red roses for our Tree.

Cut a piece of ribbon 35 cm long. Bend away from yourself as shown in the picture.

Twist the rose to the end of the ribbon, making the bendings to yourself.

From below pierce all the layers of the rose with a needle with a thread — thus our flower will keep in shape.
