Whimsical Paper Christmas Tree

By: Leah Killian for Lifestyle Crafts

Decorating your mantel for Christmas has never been so easy.  This Whimsical Paper Christmas Tree from Lifestyle Crafts will spruce up any decor and is so easy to make.  Create trees of all different sizes for a stunning holiday display!

Whimsical Paper Christmas Tree

Materials:

  • Variety of Christmas Nesting Scallops
  • Cardboard base
  • Kebab skewer
  • Adhesive
     

Instructions:

  1. Cut a cardboard base slightly smaller than your largest scallop.
     
  2. Poke a kebab skewer through the center of the base, and secure with glue.

  3. Cut 3 of each size of scallop in coordinating scrapbook paper (use a heavier weight paper).
     
  4. Put a small hole in the center of each scallop.
     
  5. Put a dab of glue on the hole before you load them onto your skewer from largest to smallest one at a time- leave a small space between each one.

  6. Once you reach the top, use stars from the Basic Cupcake Liner collection glued back to back to cover the tip of the skewer. You could also use a Nesting Star die or Star die.
     
  7. To make larger or smaller trees, just cut more or less scallops. I also inked the edges of my scallops.
