Paper Christmas Trees


You will need:

polystyrene cone (from craft stores)
patty pans/cupcake liners (approx 12 for each tree)
sequin pins

Instructions:

You just pin each layer, starting at the bottom. The bottom layers will need two strips, then just cut strips to fit. Each layer overlaps the one below it by approx 1/4 inch to cover the pins. When you get to the top, you cut a complete patty pan in half. Fold that in half again so you have a quarter Bend each side around to form a mini cone shape, pop that on top, and secure with pins ( you could use tape to hold the top together if you prefer). This gives it a nice pointy tip.
 
Eco-Tip:  Instead of throwing out old or broken Christmas ornaments and decorations, consider donating them or repurposing them into something else.  Each year my family and I go through our old decorations and find new sources for them.  For this and other tips on going green visit, The Earth and Me Go Green.
