Thread roll Christmas tree: This is another creative Christmas tree that you can think of. It is a little time consuming process, but it is worth the effort. All you need are few things. A cone shaped cardboard, a plastic sheet, a roll of medium thick thread (preferably green in color) and some glue. On the cardboard cone staple the plastic sheet tightly. Now, apply glue on the outside of the cone and carefully roll the thread all over the cone and leave it for about 2 days in a dry place. As the glue dries up, it sticks the threads together and it does not stick to the plastic sheet. Now, after 2 days of thorough drying, you can easily remove the thread cone. Carefully stick some glittering stickers on this thread cone and your Christmas tree is ready.
