Paper Christmas Trees
Face it, you’ve probably got a box of old books in your basement that you vow to do something with someday. That day is here! Grab a relatively thin book that you’re not emotionally attached to and get prepared to turn it into a beautiful vintage-inspired paper Christmas Tree. In our very first video tutorial, you will learn the steps to create a magnificent tree. These Paper Christmas Trees are a great craft do with your older kids or, if you have younger kids, you can complete one during naptime! These trees make a great gift for just about anyone on your Christmas list and they make lovely decor for your own home.
Paper Christmas trees can be make using an old book, a new book or even a magazine. Each one will give you a different look. My preference is for the classic style of the older book; however, the magazine trees are also interesting in their own merit as they show many colours. You can also be decorate them in a number of ways using spray paint and glitter. They can be customized to suit any style of home decor. Personally I think they fit in quite nicely with the vintage theme I’ve got going on in my house this holiday season.
