The holidays are a great time of year to break out that glue gun and start crafting! Today we’ve got two super fun (and simple) ways to make mini decorative Christmas trees, courtesy of Handimania! They both will fit nicely on an end table, or even serve as a centerpiece for a yuletide table scape. Let’s get started!
