Cut out the Christmas tree shape.
Peel off the paper backing and set the Christmas tree shape on the table sticky side up.
Place some decoration items onto the sticky plastic. We used flat shiny sequins to look like Christmas baubles.

Stick scraps of green tissue paper over the tree area. It doesn't matter if you go over the edges as you will trim afterwards.
