  2. Wrap the pieces around a cone form and curl them up. Be sure to use a heavy duty glue or a hot glue gun.
  3. Finish off the tree with some bead garland and a star on top (tutorial below). You can also use glitter spray to add some sparkle to your trees. For the base, you can use whatever you would like. We created a base with a large scallop and circle (cut with a digital cutting tool).



  1. Cut two matching sized stars from paper of your choosing, using Nesting Stars dies.
