Christmas Trees by Carolyn Wolff
Supply List - Patterned paper: Christmas wrapping paper from HomeSense; Foam cones: Michaels; Straight pins: Dollar Store; Chipboard stars: Bazzill; Ribbon: unknown

This was so much fun!!

Variation #1 – I used three foam cones that I purchased at Michael’s for my tree body.


Variation #2 – Instead of using patterned scrapbook paper, I used Christmas wrapping paper. I cut ½ inch strips in varying lengths from 2” to 6”. I folded them in half and attached the open end to the foam cone with a straight pin.

Variation #3 – I used a chipboard star and covered it with leftover wrapping paper. I added some ribbon and tulle and attached it to the top of the cone with straight pins.

"Christmas Tree" by Melissa Bell
Supplies - Paper Mache Cone: Darcie; Patterned paper: Best Creations Inc.; Paint: Apple Barrel; Glitter: Stickles; Other: Wooden Star, Glue Gun

Variation #1 - I made my Christmas tree three dimensional.


Variation #2 - I opted not to put a garland around my tree and so that it sits flat I didn't include a trunk.
