Welcome to my Blog & day 2 of my Christmas week! i am so happy that you enjoyed the Paper Pine Cone Tutorial that i did yesterday. I had a great response & its lovely to know that the time & effort i put into the tutorial was very well appreciated.
Today's project is a really easy Tree decoration. Its not my idea & they are loads of different tutorials around on Youtube & pinterest. Again i have had my eyes on these Tree's since last year. I was a bit unsure about making one as i was worried it might look rubbish lol. I am glad i did one though as it looks anything but rubbish.
You can choose to make your tree from different kinds of paper such as, wrapping paper, designer paper or white card stock like me. I am not 100% sure what gsm mine was but i think its around 200gsm. You don't want one that is to thick as you will struggle to shape it into a cone.
All you need for the core of your tree is a cardboard tube. Mine is from a Kitchen Roll but you can also use them from Wrapping paper etc. My tube measured 9". You can make your Tree bigger if you use a longer tube.
11 SQUARES OF CARD MEASURING 5 X 5"
22 (APPROX) SQUARES OF 4 X 4"
11 SQUARES OF 3 X 3"
CARDBOARD TUBE MEASURING 9"
I hope you like today's project & will agree with me that its so easy & inexpensive to make. Please check out my Youtube tutorial for full instructions. As always you can find the link below.
I will be back again tomorrow with project number 3.
Bye for now
