We’re already in Christmas mood around here, so today I want to show you how to make one of my favorites, the DIY Magazine Christmas Tree. You don’t need any special material and you don’t even need to be good at crafting… you just need some patience and a magazine (or a directory).
I can’t call this a tutorial as there are only three steps, which is the same as fold the pages three times.
This is the first one, take the upper right corner and fold it to make a triangle.
Do this with all the pages. Here Miss A was helping, lucky me!
You will finish with this
The second step is folding each page again the same way you did before.
And the last one is fold the lowest triangle up, like this
The thicker the magazine the more time consuming it is, but I really like a thick tree.
Now you have several options: you can leave it this way, you can spray paint it in any color you like and add glitter or fake snow, add something at the top… that’s up to you
Each year we make some and we surprise teachers or friends with them, they can believe they are made out of a magazine! Is there anything cheaper than that? And cute!
