This Crepe Paper Christmas Tree is a fun and beautiful way to decorate for the Christmas season. Learn how to make a crepe-paper Christmas tree here.
This past weekend I had some crafting time and I decided to make some decorations for my home.
Making this crepe paper tree was so much fun, and I love how it turned out!
This could easily be made in any size and fit with any theme, and I love that kind of craft.
Supplies You'll Need to Create this Project:
- Foam Cone
- Green Crepe Paper
- Straight Pins
- Sewing Machine
- Snowflake Beads
- Mini Glue Dots
- Scrapbook Paper
- 1 Toothpick
*I would recommend a White foam cone. I used a green foam floral cone and while it worked it made a bit of a mess. So the White foam cone I linked to would be better.
Crepe Paper Christmas Tree:
I am not much of a sewer but trust me, this is super easy.
Work in strips of crepe paper that are about 2 - 3 feet long.
Sew a straight line, with no backstitching, about ½ an inch from the top of your crepe paper.
To gather the crepe paper, hold onto the bottom string with one hand and pull on the top thread with the other hand. This creates ruffles in the crepe paper.
Starting at the bottom of the cone, secure the crepe paper with a straight pin.
Start winding the crepe paper around the cone and using push pins when needed.
Wrap the strips all the way to the top. Once you reach the top secure it with some straight pins.
The amount of crepe paper you need depends on how tall your cone is and how much you gather the crepe paper.
To decorate my tree, I grabbed my little snowflake beads and mini glue dots and just started gluing the little beads all over the tree.
For the star topper, I cut 2 stars out of scrapbook paper using my Cricut.
I adhered the toothpick in between two stars and then pushed it into the top of my tree
