tree. Take a white paper cup and add a pair of wings to either side of the cup. You could also cut a
head shape from cardboard and stick it on the paper cup.

candle holders. You could make them using baking paper or tracing paper or simple white paper can
do the trick. Using ice cream sticks or larger bamboo peel sticks, make a sturdy frame and wrap
