When I saw this tutorial at Creative Chaos a couple of days ago I was amazed! It's the most beautiful Paper Christmas Tree that I've ever seen!
I knew I HAD TO MAKE IT, or even TRY to make it!
If only I had the same incredibly shinny silver glitter!
(plus more supplies and skills)
I'll show you step-by-step what I did but I recommend that you go directly to the original, the pictures are far more beautiful and professional. ( I shouldn't have said that.... but it's true! Mine are taken late at night with no natural light.)
This part is a little bit tricky because
this paper can be easily torn.
I think she has used a thicker kind of crepe paper.
Start from the bottom and hot glue as you go.
I've also made one with cotton balls
I've made these trays for decoration
They are made with plastic plates and cups
All finished up!
(I'm sorry for the crappy photos!)
Ok, not as good as the original, not
even so fluffy but it's decent enough!
The green one now decorates
my bo-boy's shop front window
the pink one is a gift to my good friend Afrodite
and these two are currently in my shop and
maybe will be sold at the Christmas Fair this weekend.
I've made the 3-D stars with card stock and glitter!
I've also tried to make these little
Christmas trees that I've seen around
with Bottle brushes.
