1.
We began by cutting the cable in to strips depending on the size of trees you want.

3”-3 ½” trees you cut 4 ¼” strips
5”-5 ½” trees you cut 6 ½” strips
7”-7 ½” trees you cut 9” strips.

2.
Cut a slit through the cable and expose the wires inside. Remove the wire out of the cable and put it aside. You may note that there may be sets twisted in the cable Do not untwist them. If they are not twisted around each other Take 2 strips of wire and twists them together.

Then cut a strip of masking tape the same length as your wire you have cut. Cut the tape length wise so you have two strips of tape.

Then place the second piece of wire and tape and sandwich it between the untwisted twine on to the piece of wire and tape. Then press down firmly so the tape sticks to one another and make sure the wire is in the middle.

8. Then trim the ends of excess tape on each side of the tree. Then on one end of the tree cut a V shape from the wires out to the end of the tape. This end will be the top of your tree. The other end of the tree you cut along each side of the tape up ¼” or a slight more depending on the size of your tree. This end will be the bottom of the tree.

Next we shape the tree. We shape by trimming the tree with scissors, cutting from the top to bottom of both sides of the tree. You cut narrow at the top and as you go down you go wider.
