Magazine Christmas Tree  

I saw the most wonderful tutorial for this tree at TheHouseThatLarsBuilt and just had to make one. I love how she did her's, but I just used what I had on hand. Somehow lately I’ve been getting In Style, an enormous magazine, for free and I can’t get them to stop. They are such a huge waste of paper that I can’t throw them out, even though I don't look at them. Figured I could use the paper for something.

When I saw this tut I grabbed one and tried it. I don’t have the spray paint, so I left them natural. I hot glued the ends together to make it a full tree. I don’t have spray glue so I brushed the edges from the top down with ModPodge and sprinkled it with glitter I got 1/2 off last week (MUCH lovelier in person). I sat it on a little candle (trunk) I have that’s got a lid and a silver snowflake sleeve around it and I love the results. (Candle from Bath & Body Works). It looks so lovely in the sunlight and by the tree. Maybe you try one too. Sooooo easy, but a lengthy job when you use a magazine the size I did!

I see this could be used on a few inches of magazine to make a 3D tree that you could glue the two sides to paper as decoration, or in the center of a card so it opens when you open the card.

And of course if one was so pretty, I had to make a second one ... I'm going to use them as table decorations for the church Christmas party. Wouldn't this be great using a vintage book???

My freebie for you today is a surprise! Merry Christmas!
