  • 3 Paper Mache Christmas Trees in different heights (like these)
  • Spools of Trim by Celebrate It (found at Michaels)
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Foam Paint Brush
  • Craft Paint in coordinating colors

Christmas craft

  1. With a foam brush, paint the paper mache christmas trees to coordinate with the trim.


2. Starting at the bottom, hot glue the trim around one paper mache christmas tree. When you get half way up the tree, switch to a different colored trim. My largest cone christmas tree took 2 spools for the bottom color. All others did fine with just 1 spool per color.

3. When you get to the top, trim off the excess trim and secure the end with hot glue to the tip of the christmas tree.

    These trees are so cute and look so easy to make. It is never to early to start preparing for Christmas and these are going to add a much needed pop of colour to my Christmas celebrations this year! Thanks for the inspiration.
