On the back page of our December issue, you can see trees created with patterned-paper and foam cones. Want to make your own? Here’s the scoop.
- Cut patterned paper into 1″ and 3/4″ strips. Using decorative-edge scissors, cut the strips into 2-1/2″ long pieces.
- Curl one end of each piece with a smooth pencil.
- Adhere the strips in even layers around the foam cone using a hot-glue gun. When you get to the final layer, fold the tops of the paper strips down and adhere them to the top of the cone.
- Embellish with buttons, gems, and brads. Add a star or other shape to the top using a thin piece of wire.
