How To Make A Christmukka Tree

A few years back, when I first started blogging, I wrote a guest post for  My Poppet; a crafty lifestyle blog that I was totally crushing on at the time! The project was called My first ever Christmukka Tree, and seeing that Hanukkah + Christmas both coincidentally coincide this year, I thought it was appropriate to re-share my step-by-step crafty tutorial!
