Cut a long triangle the length of a sheet of paper and roll it up tightly from the straight edge, gluing the pointed end to the roll to form a tight trunk for a miniature tree. You can make the trunks from strong kraft (brown) paper or white printer paper.

Trim the cones to various lengths to make a range of tree heights. For a simple arrangement you will need to make an odd number of tree trunks, with a minimum of three.
