Paper Rosette Trees

By: JJ Sobey for Glue Dots

Combine your love for paper flowers and Christmas craft projects with these easy DIY Christmas crafts from Glue Dots. These paper rosette trees are gorgeous and classy, while still subtly Christmasy. Adhere paper rosettes to a tree base for an easy, pretty decoration.

Paper Rosettes Tree


  • Craft Glue Dots
  • Mini Glue Dots
  • Pop Up Glue Dots
  • 6” Styrofoam tree
  • Patterned paper – Basic Grey
  • Buttons – Autumn Leaves
  • Grungeboard star – Tim Holtz
  • Glimmer mist, chalkboard glimmer mist, glimmer glam – Tattered Angels


  1. Paint Styrofoam tree with “Dirty Martini” glimmer glam and “Tattered Leather” glimmer mist, allow to dry(you can skip this step if starting with a green Styrofoam tree).
  2. Punch 2” circles from patterned paper (I used approx 100 circles for this size tree).
  3. Cut a circle in a spiral pattern.
  4. Starting from the outer edge; roll up the spiral until you get to the center of the circle, and you have a rosette.
  5. secure spiral with a Craft Dot, if you make a bunch of the rosettes first, adding them to the tree will go faster.
  6. Add a Craft Dot to the bottom of a rosette and adhere it to the bottom of the styrofoam tree, and work your way up to the top, ending with a rosette on the very top of the tree form. If any rosettes seem a little loose, tuck in a Mini Glue Dot to secure.
  7. Mist entire tree with “Pearl” glimmer mist, or “Chalkboard” glimmer mist. It’s a subtle effect, but adds a nice shimmer.
  8. Allow to dry fill in any odd gaps in the tree with buttons – adheree with Craft Dots.
  9. Coat grungeboard star with “Chalkboard” glimmer mist, and let it dry.
  10. Using Craft Dots, adhere buttons to either side of star.
  11. Wrap a Pop-Up Glue Dot around bottom point of star, heat with heat gun until it starts to melt and flow, then poke it into the top of the tree.
