A Paper Forest You Can Craft for Christmas

Oh! A forest!

Do you ever get a craft, want to remake it, and have to deconstruct it?

It took me a few minutes pondering, as to how to fold it, but once I figured it out, these trees came together simply.  I used double sided Christmas paper from Graphic 45 and my trees came out lovely, but I did need to put them between books to compress after my glitter had dried. As you can see, the original tree uses sheet music — much thinner paper.

You will start with whatever size circle you want to make your tree. If you have a circle cutter, great. An upturned glass works just as well. Fold as shown. Embellish edges with glitter, buttons, rhinestones, etc. Add a wire hook to hang it.

Put a bit of glue on the end of a twig and squeeze the bottom of the tree to insert the “trunk”.

    Did you use 1/2 of the circle ? Great idea, Julie Andrews wore a blouse with that kind of embellishment in “Eloise At the Plaza”
