Materials Needed:

  • 2 Styrofoam cones: one larger, one smaller
  • glue gun
  • scissors
  • buttons
  • miniature ornaments
  • scissors
  • several large sheets of green construction or craft paper
  • taper candle

Cut Strips of Paper

For your smaller tree, cut 6 thick strips of paper (around 4" thick). For the larger tree, cut 11 pieces.

Make Fringe

Using scissors, cut 3/4 through each strip but be careful not to cut all the way through.

Measure Strips

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.
