Begin by laying out your dowels roughly 5-6 inches apart. This will give you the height of your tree. Using 10 three foot dowels, 3/4" round, our tree was set to be about 4 feet tall.

Measure 5 inches in from the end of the top dowel and place a dot with a sharpie. Then, take a tape measure or string and create a line from that dot to the opposite corner of the bottom dowel. (The widest side, pictured in the bottom half of this photo, is the part of the dowels that you will be keeping for your tree. Be sure to take note of which side is which so that you can discard the right half of the dowels.) Take a sharpie and mark each dowel where the tape measure crosses it. This will be your cut line.
Cut down each dowel at the mark made with the sharpie. (Be sure to separate your dowels, keeping the correct half as mentioned earlier!)
We then stained our dowels with watered down brown paint.
Begin by tying your twine to the bottom dowel, a few inches in from the left. Once firmly attached, bring the twine up to the next dowel, also a few inches in, and tying it tightly. Continue this process of each side of the dowels, being sure to leave 5-6 inches between each dowel.
After all of the dowel are tied 5-6 inches apart down each side of your dowels, you can create a loop of twine at the center of the top dowel to hang your tree from.
Even up your dowels if needed. You could also use a dab of hot glue to hold the strings in place.
Decorate as desired!
