Book Page Christmas Tree (project)

A couple weeks ago a few friends and I made some Christmas wreaths out of old book pages. They turned out so FABULOUS that it got me thinking … what else could I make out of old book pages?? The next project was a book page Christmas Tree – and it is equally FABULOUS!! Here’s what you need;

  • Paper mache cone (or a foam cone if you want to attached the pages with hot glue)
  • Staples and Stapler
  • Old book (I used a medium size book)
  • Scissors
  • Glue or hot glue

Roll the book pages into little cone shapes and starting at the bottom of your paper mache cone – staple the pages near the point. You will need to semi-layer as you go around the cone to make sure you have good coverage. Add rows up the paper mache cone until you reach the top. At or near the top you will need to cut your page cones a little shorter. The top is one small cone fit over the point of the paper mache cone. (You may need a dab of glue or hot glue here)

Real or Fake?

My family decorates an artificial tree -for many reason… mostly because its easier, cheaper and safer. I do miss the smell of a real tree though 🙂

What do you do?
