Use a ruler to mark equal stripes on a piece of paper or a piece of tissue paper, and then cut them out with scissors. Each strip of paper forms one part of the Christmas tree chain. It is very important that each strip has the same dimensions.

3. Creating a Christmas tree chain.

Take the first strip and glue its ends with glue to create a ring. You can use tape for this or sew the ends together with a stapler. Tape or staples will speed up the process because they don't need to dry. However, when you decide to use glue, keep both ends together until the glue dries. Make sure the edges of the strip are even. Once your first ring is connected, place another strip of paper through the center. Then connect the ends of the second strip. Continue adding strips in the same way until the Christmas tree chain is long enough. Optionally, you can also loop the Christmas tree chain.
