Smooth the Christmas fabric over the sticky side of the foam tree. Stretch and re-position the fabric to remove any wrinkles. Let the spray adhesive cure for about 20 minutes.

Turn the tree over and cut off any excess fabric, leaving about an inch of fabric around all sides. Fold up the fabric around the edge of the tree and hot glue it to the back of the board.
