There are lots of ways in which you can decorate a plain and simple tree such as with tape and whatever else you can do to it. For instance, you could make stripes. Start with 20 strips of tape (20mm-5mm), cut 5? long, with a knife or scissors, cut approximately 2? on both sides. Wrap the stripes around the tree trunk a few times (stripes are made in a technique called flexing a cone), gently pull taught).
Another idea is to use colored tape. Wrap colored tape around the tree trunk and start from the front and make a striped portion from the back. Wrap the tape to show the colors and then cut a few rows of colored tape and slide the stripes through. splits the stripes however you want and at the end just hang the decoration.
