I found some papier mâché cones at a little shop back in November and have been trying to figure out what to do with them since. Well, this whole 24 Days of Christmas Crafts was the perfect excuse to give them a go. Paul took one look at these trees when he arrived home and said, “They look like flapper girls” hence their now coined name. I found these mint crepe paper streamers at a really disgusting party store in DC in October (sorry, it was just really gross) but this color totally stood out.
Materials needed: papier mâché cones, crepe paper streamers, scissors, double stick tape.
Step 1: Cut into the streamers about 1″ in ever 1/4″ inch.
Step 2: Affix double stick tape to the bottom rim of the cone about the height of the streamer.
Step 3: Wrap around the base about 3 times.
Step 4: Continue up the tree, each time leaving less and less space between layers.
Step 5: For the last layer, cut the streamer in half to leave a little topper on the tree.
