Y’all asked….and so here it is!! The Tissue Paper Christmas Tree Tutorial!!
First you will need…
and hot glue.
If you use white school glue this becomes a fun kid friendly project. However, it takes a bit longer to hold each tissue in place and well….I’m impatient! I have done this with Alie before and she had a lot of fun making tissue trees with me.
I find it’s easiest to fold several pieces of tissue paper into a thin long strip and cut inch wide strips from it. Then unwind the strips and cut squares from it.
Using a piece of printer paper form a cone and tape it together.
Trim the bottom so that it stands up straight.
Take a pencil and place the square over the eraser and fold down. Then place a dab of hot glue onto the top.
Then start placing the little squares onto the cone. Those lines I placed to help as a guide. I decided to make this one a peppermint twist tree!!
Keep placing the folded squares close together.
Make sure to fill in all the bald spots…
Fluff up the spots that got squished by fingers…
Clean up the glue strings and keep filling in the bald spots…
Trim the pieces that are too long…
Now, we’re finished!! Super cute huh??
I hope this is a helpful tutorial. I would LOVE to see if you give it a try!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!!
