First, I laid the corks out in a tree shape. I just kept tweaking until I got the sizing that I wanted.
Then, I hot-glued and glued and glued and glued and glued all of the corks together, keeping the shape of the tree that I had laid out.
The very top cork was painted a washed out yellow for the "star". And since I didn't have any brown, I just left the trunk in it's natural cork.
And if I ever feel like I need a change, I can just flip it around for just the plain cork look.
I know I'm getting an early start on Christmas - anyone else out there getting an early start?
