I made three Christmas trees and added old chair spindles and a variety of bases to add height and interest.
You take the cardboard cone and wrap double stick all around the base. Take strips of paper cut with a zig zag bottom. Stick the paper around the cone on the tape, gathering it as you go.
Continue to wrap the paper around the cone cutting the strips of paper thinner and thinner as you go toward the tip.
This is what the tree looks like when you are done. Cute, but with a bit of junk, they just get cuter.
Some chair spindles and a variety of bases are just what this little elf needed.
The spindles become trunks and bases are the perfect thing to make them stand tall.
The one with the yellow base and spindle is my favorite...but dont tell the others that.
Merry Christmas!!!

When I came up with a musical theme for my Company Christmas party decorations, I found that some sheet music wrapping paper (I am sure that you could use real sheet music too), three cardboard cones and double stick tape was all I needed for my Musical Christmas Trees". These are easy to make and you probably have everything you need around the house except for the carboard cones. You can use styrofoam and glue as well but I found them way more expensivbe than the cardboard. These are about 10 inches high and with the addition of old chair spindles, they range from 16-20 inches. I think when I add the greenery, trumpets, and ornaments to the table scape they will be quite unique! Happy Holidays!
