Cut Strips of Paper
For your smaller tree, cut 6 thick strips of paper (around 4" thick). For the larger tree, cut 11 pieces.
Using scissors, cut 3/4 through each strip but be careful not to cut all the way through.
Starting at the base of each tree, the largest part, wrap strips around and measure the width needed. Repeat until you’ve covered the whole tree and mark off where you’ll need to trim each strip to fit. Cut each strip to fit around the tree; every ascending strip should be slightly smaller.
To add rustic charm and curb appeal during the holidays designer Dan Faires makes tree silhouettes with plywood and nail heads.
