2. Fold each of the six paper Christmas trees in half. Use a glue stick to add glue to one of the folded halves of a Christmas tree. Then attach another folded half onto the glue, aligning the pieces together. Continue gluing and adding the Christmas tree halves until all six are attached. Then add glue to the two ends and attach them together to finish forming the 3D Christmas tree.
