Wool christmas trees
Florist's wire (16 gauge), toy wheel of any shape or size (this determines the size of the tree..you could make a whole forest), and wool. Shape the wire, make a blunt end to fit into the toy wheel's hole, glue if you like, wrap wool around your tree armature. Little ones can wrap and decorate with sequins, leftover yarn, etc. I had some angelina from spinning that I wrapped around the tree. For a tree that is more three-dimensional, you could make two or three wire trees and place them in the wheels at cross-purposes.
