Holiday Trees: A fun DIY craft!

It’s finally getting chilly out here and Christmas is just around the corner! Before the eating and partying takes over everyone’s schedules I decided to invite some friends over to make a little Christmas craft! What’s better than making your own decorations to add to the season’s sparkle..am I right?!

We already tried our hands at  wreaths last year so this time we made adorable little Christmas trees inspired by this post at Little Inspiration.

DIY Holiday Trees!

The completed trees line our fireplace along with last year’s wreath!

If you’re on board, here’s what you need:

  1. Styrofoam trees of various heights
  2. Various fabrics/festive papers to cover trees (we bought pre-cut squares from Michaels)
  3. Ribbons
  4. Little glittery garlands
  5. Hot glue gun
  6. Sparkly foam balls/star tree toppers (optional) like these

Christmas tree supplies

 

And the rest is really your own creativity, so plug that hot glue gun and stick away! It took us a little over 2 hours of effort to finish these off and we munched on some goodies and chatted in between = an evening well spent :).

 

Our completed masterpieces!

Happy Holidays to all of you and your families! I’ll see you in 2015 after my travels to see family in Hong Kong and India :).
