How To Make Christmas Trees At Home๐ŸŽ„

These tabletop christmas trees ๐ŸŽ„ are easy to make. Use them to decorate your home, or give them as gifts.

PINECONE TREE

(plastic-foam cone, felt, pinecones, ball ornaments)

  1. Cover a plastic-foam cone with felt and let dry.
  2. Starting at the bottom of the cone, glue on small pinecones. Continue around the cone, adding some shiny ball ornaments. You may want to let a small section dry before you continue.
  3. When you reach the top of the cone, add a larger pinecone.

PAPER TREE

(poster board, construction paper, self-adhesive stars)

  1. To make the tree trunk, color a piece of white poster board brown, or cut a strip of brown poster board to measure 4 by 27 inches. Fold 2 inches in from each narrow end. Overlap the folded pieces and tape together, forming a triangular shape that will stand.
  2. To make tree branches, cut pieces of green construction paper and glue to the trunk. Place self adhesive stars over the tree. Add a paper star to the top.

GLITTER TREE

(poster board, old newspaper, glitter)

  1. On a 12-by-18-inch piece of poster board, draw and cut out a large half-circle. Draw four smaller half-circles on it, as shown.
  2. Draw and cut out a small V-shape pattern from poster board that will fit between the half-circles. Trace around the pattern, drawing v shapes about an inch apart, all pointing outward. Cut the sides of each v shape to form a small tab.
  3. Cover your work area with old newspaper. Squeeze glue on the half-circles and on the tabs. Sprinkle with different colors of glitter and let dry.
  4. Shake off the excess glitter and pull the half-circle into a cone shape. Tape or staple the overlap. Bend out the tabs.

SEQUIN TREE

(lightweight cardboard, felt, rickrack, sequins, ball ornament)

  1. Cover both sides of two pieces of lightweight cardboard with green felt. Draw and cut out a Christmas tree from a third piece of lightweight cardboard. Trace around the tree on each felt-covered board and cut them out.
  2. On one tree, cut a slit in the center, beginning at the bottom and extending halfway up the tree. The slit width should be slightly more than the thickness of the cardboard. On the second tree, cut a slit in the center, beginning at the top and extending halfway down the tree.
  3. Slip the two trees together to form a three-dimensional tree. Add some glue at the seams and let dry.
  4. Glue rickrack along the tree edges and let dry. Glue a variety of sequin shapes to decorate the tree. Add a small ball ornament to the top.

TISSUE TREE

  2. Cut circles, about 3 inches in diameter, from tissue paper. Pinch the center of one of these circles into a point.
  3. Squeeze some glue onto a small paper plate. Place the point of the tissue into the glue and insert it into one of the holes on the cone. Repeat until the whole tree is covered.
