12 Days Of Christmas Crafts Day 7: Curly Paper Christmas Tree

12 days of Christmas Crafts

Hi Lovelies!

Welcome to day 6 of Christmas crafts! It has been SUPER busy this past week and I have been writing 2-3 posts every day, so I am sorry if this is the only post today…the fashion will be back ASAP, I promise:) Today’s craft is really cute though, so I’m sure you will like it anyway! Enjoy!

Start with a foam cone, a pencil, straight pins, and some little scraps of scrapbook paper. I cut mine into equal pieces, but I’m sure it would look really cool if they were all different too….hell, maybe even better!

Twirl each little piece of paper around a pencil so that it curls up. I recommend a mechanical pencil, as the regular pencil I used originally gave them a weird shape with all the ridges.

Now, attach those little curly pieces of paper to the foam with a straight pin. Continue around the base and move upwards. Be sure to cover up the pins with the next layer up.

    I love your crafts! I work with kids so these are great holiday crafts that take up some time :) how are you able to take such great close up pictures? I make crafts too, but my pictures don’t turn out so great! I just got a Canon Rebel and am still trying to learn how to work it :)

      Thanks, Michelle! These would be great for kids, just make sure they aren’t too young with all of those pins! I use a Nikon D90 to take my photos. I take them in raw format and then brighten them a little bit in Photoshop since they are taken indoors!
