Whimsical Paper Christmas Tree

By: Leah Killian for Lifestyle Crafts

Whimsical Paper Christmas Tree

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! One of the best things about this Christmas craft idea is that is easily made out of any scrap paper you have around the house. Because it uses so many pieces, you do not necessarily need papers that match.

Combining multiple pieces and prints produces an eclectic look that would look stunning in just about any room. Plus, if you are looking for recycled Christmas craft ideas, you could easily make these Christmas tree crafts out of old Christmas cards, magazines, or thicker pieces of wrapping paper.

  • Variety of Christmas Nesting Scallops

  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.

Was wondering where to get the scallop patterns from? Have looked all over the place for them - in stores and online. No luck. Typical -- the one item I decide I want to make and can't get any info for it

Hi there, these Nesting Scallop Dies are produced by We R Memory Keepers and can be found on Amazon or in stores like Joann. Thanks! - Julia
