DIY Paper Trees

I’d like to make an announcement. I am an economic advisor over Canada…in my Economics class. When I say “economic advisor”, I mean I just get to go to the Econ Summit and decorate our table. My job is to make it… Canadian. A few things popped into my head. Their flag, forest, bears, Niagara Falls, hockey…etc. So I’ve been working these things into the table. But guess what?!? You can use these trees during the Christmas holiday, too! That’s why I’m going to teach you how to make them. Mmk? I found the original instructions here over at the Martha Stewart website!
DIY Paper Trees

All you need is: Green paper, scissors, skewer sticks, pencil, multiple sizes of circles to trace(I used bowls), and something to crease the paper.

Paper Trees

Trace circles on onto the green paper and cut them out. You can do as many layers as you want.
Paper Trees Preparation

Fold the circle in half four times and make sure the folds are creased very well.

Folded circle

Cut a small hole in the center and slide it down the skewer stick. Use a dab of hot glue to make it stay.

Paper Trees Final

And there you have it! Your own little forest. You can grab some glitter markers and things to let the lil’ tikes decorate them for Christmas!

Hope you all have a happy, safe, and handmade holiday!
