It’s easy to make a quick Christmas tree using Glue Dots and paper from your crafty stash!

First, roll a piece of green paper into a cone shape and secure it using Glue Dots.

  Next, choose paper you like from your crafty stash of paper leftovers.  I find that double sided paper looks best on the tree.  I cut the paper to a 1″ width and 3″ length.

 Wrap the paper pieces around a pen or pencil to give them a nice curl.

Finally, using Craft Glue Dots stick each curled piece of paper to your tree.  I like to start at the bottom and work around the base adding the curls and then move up the tree.

I topped the tree with a star pin by Maya Road.

  2. Me and my 6 year old daughter are each making one right now…what a cute idea! She is giving hers to Grandma for Christmas…Grandma is going to love it! Thanks for the idea!

  3. I am embarrassed to ask, but here goes: how did you make the cone = what size paper and what did you cut off? How tall did it end up being? THANKS!!!!!!!

    1. Lauriejane,
      I think that’s a great question. I used a 8-1/2 x 11″ sheet of cardstock and just rolled it up until it looked right to me. While holding it, I turned it upside down and cut off the bottom until it would sit flat on a table. It took me a few tries to get the paper just right. I’d say it ended up being about 6-7″ tall. I hope that helps!
