Many Christmas trees are based on cone shape. To make them, decide on the height you want your homemade Christmas tree to be. The height governs the size of the semi-circle you will have to cut out for your tree (Drawing 1).

Suppose you want your homemade Christmas tree to be 10" high. Tie a long piece of string to the pointed end of a nail. Tie the other end to the pointed end of a pencil. The string should measure 10" after it is tied. Draw a straight line across the paper or cardboard which, for this size, should be 20" long or twice the height. Stick the nail in the exact center of this line. Keeping the string taut, start at one point and describe a half circle to the other point. Cut out. Roll into a cone of the desired proportion. Cut away excess paper, and glue or staple ends.
