On my previous post I shared my brand new table top Icelandic Advent Calendar Tree!

In this post, I am sharing how we constructed the tree. It is more of a guideline than a step by step tutorial but I am hoping some of you who may want to build your own will find it useful

As always, please feel free to ask me any questions.
