When I think of Christmas, one of the first images that comes to mind is trees. I decided to make some out of supplies I already had around the house. Even if you don’t have these on hand, you can pick some up on the cheap!
You can buy styrofoam tree forms from a craft store, but I made my own out of construction paper and paper plates. Then I just hot glued it up! The popsicle stick tree reminds me of this West Elm tree that costs a lot more.
I made the magazine tree using this tutorial from Martha Stewart. Martha is the queen of crafts, so I’ll let her explain that one. The birdhouses I used for display are from the dollar section of Michael’s. I love how they look nestled with the trees!
I placed a star ornament at the top of each tree to tie them together. I found these at the dollar store in a package of six. I plan to make some more trees in the coming weeks out of more different materials. I’m already thinking about feathers, newspaper, and felt. Can you think of any more ideas?
