Make a Curly Paper Christmas Tree
Craft this whimsical Christmas tree using budget-friendly supplies and time-friendly techniques.
What You'll Need
Paper candy cup
6-inch-long florist's stake or a painted 1/4-inch dowel
Green construction paper or heavy curling ribbon
Glue or other adhesive
How to Make It
Insert dry floral foam into the paper cup.
Insert the stake or dowel into the center of the foam.
Cut thin strips of ribbon or construction paper in graduated lengths.
Use scissors to curl the ribbon, or curl the construction paper around a pencil.
Glue the uncurled end of each strip to the stake or dowel to form curling branches. Be sure to start with shorter lengths at the top and work downward.
Crumple pieces of waxed paper atop the foam to mimic snow.
