1 Separate the brown, orange, red and yellow crepe sheets.
2 Loosely tear a few lengths of the brown crepe and twist the crepe together by rubbing your hands together with the crepe between them.
3 Curl the brown crepe around itself to form the trunk of the tree and pull out sections to make the branches. Glue down the trunk and branches to your backing board.
4 Tear off sections of the remaining colours to make the leaves. Don’t worry about being too precise, different sizes and shapes will mean a better look in the end.
5 Scrunch the remaining crepe down to create the look of the leaves. Play around with some layouts and once you’re happy with the placement, glue each section down in place.
