Its Christmas in Chino, California and time to decorate our front patio. We purchased these Gold 4-ft trees in 2009 after Christmas. Each tree cost $7.99 on sale at a local linen store for 75% discount. This post explains each steps with pictures on how this gold tree was assembled.    

This post will show the eight steps to assemble these gold Christmas trees.  

Step 1: Fig.1 shows the tree has been placed into a cardboard box for safe keeping. Fig.2 shows the three plastic feet that will become the tree base. The parts of this tree, are the three plastic feet, the gold bottom and top pieces that will need to be assemble to make the tree.

Step 2: Next, assemble the base of the tree. Insert each leg into the trunk of the tree. The trunk has three plastic grove that allow the legs to attach to the base. Fig.4 through fig.6 shows how each green plastic part is to be assembled.

Step 7: Fig.14 through fig.16 shows the last step is to push down the plastic bough down. So the tree is fluffed up. It must be depressed for storage but for show the bough must be pushed down.
