STEP TWO

Attach ribbon pieces to wooden spool using a glue gun and glue sticks.  Each tree requires seven spools, six Christmas patterns, and one brown pattern.  Assemble the spool tree by gluing together three spools to create the base.  Add two spools on the second row and then one spool at the top in a pyramid shape.  Attach the tree trunk spool at the bottom center.
