Paper Trees

Saturday, November 24, 2007

I have become addicted to making these paper trees. Last year for Christmas I made a bunch of those glitter ornaments. You can see them here. But this year it is these paper trees. This is another tutorial on Splitcoast. I have been to Hobby Lobby twice now to get the materials to make them. I will use these as gifts for Christmas. I am so proud of the way they turned out.

Here is the forest of all the ones I have made so far:



This is the first one I made. It is actually my favorite. I still have to find some moss to go around the bottom of the tree to cover up the the styrofoam.



This one is very similar to the first.



I decided not to put a pot on the bottom of this one.



Then I found these mini cones. So I thought I would make some mini paper trees. I made this blue colored one with a snowflake topper. The tutorial says you cut the strips of paper 1x4 inches so I did that for this one as well as the previous ones. I thought it looked a little odd so for the next one I cut the strips 3/4 x 3 inches. That worked much better. I put the red and green one on a flower pot but I still have to find something to cover the bottom. I made a snowflake topper for the other one using some chipboard I painted white.
