DIY Tissue Paper Holiday Trees
I love a creating a colorful mantel for the holidays! I’ve been obsessed with Hobby Lobby’s colorful trees for a few years. I decided to make some coordinating colorful tissue paper trees for our mantel.
Hobby Lobby Christmas Shop
I love seeing all of the Christmas and Holiday items at Hobby Lobby! This year there are so many beautiful items! There are gorgeous serving pieces, dishes, trees, ornaments, signs and anything you need to create a memorable holiday home! And everything is on sale too! I fell in love with this Christmas Tree sign. It’s the centerpiece of our holiday mantel and it looks so happy surrounded by the colorful bottle brush trees and my new tissue paper trees! I painted the trees colors that match the tissue papers I used.
How to make Tissue Paper Holiday Trees
These trees are so easy to make! You only need a few supplies and you can find them all at Hobby Lobby!
DIY tissue Paper Holiday Trees Supplies
- Holiday Tree Sign
- Tissue Paper (you can use any color you want! Hobby Lobby has a wonderful assortment of colors).
- Wood Dowels (these came in a package of 20)
- Wood Shapes (these shapes are in the same section as the dowels).
- Hot Glue Gun
- Glue Dots (optional)
- Templates (I created two sizes you can download for FREE).
DIY Tissue Paper Holiday Tree Directions
Lay the template on top of the tissue paper with the straight edge at the fold!
Trace the template with a pencil
Cut out the traced design
Do this 2 or 4 times, depending on how fluffy you want your trees to be!
Divide the trees in half. Open up the trees you just cut out and staple the center of the trees so you have two sections of trees.
Lay the first section of trees on your work surface, with the fold facing up. Hot glue a line of glue from the center of the trees down to the tree trunk.
Lay the wood dowel on top of the glue.
Hot glue a line of glue starting at the top of the tree, over the dowel to the bottom of the tree. Lay the second set of trees on top of the first section with the fold facing inwards. You want the folds next to the dowel so that the trees flare outward.
Hot glue the dowel with the tree on it onto the circle or square piece. I used a drill to make an indentation to hold the glue. You can do this or just use glue and hold it as it cools and it will stand up.
I used glue dots to close the gaps between the first set of trees and the second set. You can also use hot glue to do this. You might also need to glue the tops of the trees so they don’t gap.
How to Make Different Heights of Trees
I cut the dowels in half and used the smaller template to make smaller trees. But you can cut the dowels at different heights if you want all of the trees to be different heights
