Here I am again, less than a month to Christmas and ready to share with you what we’ve done this month at our Int’l Bloggers Club!!
I already shared what we did with paper, like this paper pennant banner and this month our theme is Christmas.
We don’t have snow yet, in fact we are still enjoying sunny days, beach, time outdoors with friends, so it’s not easy to think about Christmas yet but I am slowly getting into it.
Today I want to show you how to make one of my favorites, something nice and inexpensive at the same time. It is also very fun to do with kids, and you can do not only one but as many as you want.
How to make a 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, super easy!
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 to 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!
What about you? Do you have any special DIY ornament or decor you really like?
