Handmade Christmas Tree Ornaments Instructions:
To make the base, cut two triangles from heavy cardstock (or chipboard). You can hand-cut them or speed up the process with a large triangle die and a die-cutting machine.
Take one triangle and cover it with adhesive. Adhesive Sheets are perfect for this because you want to have just enough adhesive to hold the tree’s string in place.
Wrap string, twine or embroidery floss around the triangle until you’ve covered it completely! Flip it over and use a combination of Adhesive Dots Mini and Adhesive Lines to hold the ends of the twine in place.
Take several pieces of Crafty Foam Tape and add them to the back of the tree. Stack your other triangle on top for a finished look in the back. It’s a perfect place to write a note!
Flip the tree over and adhere a “trunk” to it. You can often find small pieces of wood like I used at craft stores, or you can just go outside and find a small “trunk” in nature! Fallen tree branches are wonderful for this.
Complete your tree by adding a die-cut word to it, as well as a few sequins and a star. You’ll also want to add a string hanger to the tree so you can hang it. You can attach the hanger to the tree with adhesive or slide it through the middle of the tree.
Now you have an adorable tree to hang on your Christmas tree! This tree would also look super cute as a tag on a Christmas gift too.
