Tutorial: Christmas Tree Decor

I found an awesome project for kids online that I wanted to do with my daughter and never got around to it. The project was simply giving children objects, on person used buttons, to glue onto a piece of paper to make into a Christmas tree. I had tons of scratch paper left from making my Christmas wood blocks and decided to do something similar (making a tree shape on paper) but instead I used scrap paper and cut out 1 inch circles using my Silhouette die cut machine. Here are the quick and easy instructions.



Start with lots of circles


Start gluing your circles down from the bottom and work your way up making a tree shape
Very simple and basic but it really does pop and look best when you have different color papers and different patterns


All finished and framed


Our mantel


ENJOY!
