An Economical Christmas

With the budget so tight this year we have been forced to conserve. An inexpensive Christmas tree:

To make the Christmas tree, you'll need several toilet paper tubes and a paper towel tube. You'll also need a pair of scissors.
1.Cut several holes in the paper towel tube. Please be careful! Adults should have a child cut these holes for them, because it's a bit tricky to poke the holes in the cardboard tube.
2.Next, cut a slit about 1 to 2 inches long in one end of each toilet paper tube.
3.Now, pinch the end of one of the tubes with the slit and then insert that end of the toilet paper tube into one of the holes that you cut in the paper towel tube. Repeat Step #3 to fill the rest of the holes that you cut.
Throw some glue and glitter and voila a magical Christmas!
