Miniature Christmas Tree
5 to 10s
The technique used to make this tree is a little time-consuming but the effect is worth the effort.
: 1 hour
Thin cardboard or paper
Compass, plate or other round object
Using a compass, plate or other method, draw a semicircle on your paper.
Cut the semi circle out.
Rip or cut pieces of tissue paper into small squares around 1.5cm x 1.5cm.
Mould these pieces around the end of the pencil.
Glue them to the paper.
Fill up around 2/3 of the semicircle using this technique, trying to be as compact as you can so there are no white spaces.
Trim the tissue paper.
Glue the empty 1/3 to the inside of the rest of the paper to create a cone.
Decorate the tree however you like.
I've used the same technique with red tissue paper
