Don't skimp on the leaves - this project uses many hundreds - as the time and effort are repaid with a simple yet memorable marker of the season.

With no scissors necessary (cut lengths of string for tying beforehand) this activity provides an opportunity for children to get involved and make a big contribution to the home's festive décor.
