This project by Single Girl's DIY involves creating a rustic Christmas tree using Tumbling Tower blocks from Dollar Tree. Here are the steps:

  1. Glue the blocks together to form the tree shape, creating sections of 3, 5, and 7 blocks. Let it dry for about an hour.
  2. Combine the sections by gluing them together using either wood glue or hot glue.
  3. Paint the tree with green chalk paint, and paint some blocks white.
  4. Attach the white blocks to the base and trunk to secure them in place.
  5. Optionally, add a star ornament to the top of the tree.

You'll have leftover blocks for other crafts like snowman hats or Christmas present ornaments.
