Happy Holidays! We’re happy to be here as Jen’s guesties today! We are all about easy holiday decor that can spruce up your Christmas mantel or home for little cost. At Lolly Jane we share weekly tutorials and have a ton of holiday projects to browse this time of year, like these paper wrapped trees:
For this project, you may need to make a quick trip to the craft store for the cones but probably have everything else in your craft stash.
- 3 styrofoam cones, various sizes
- 3 rolls of wrapping paper, various prints
- Paper decoupage
- Foam brush
- Note: Our Birch Wood Cans are pictured but we didn’t end up using them like we had originally planned 😉
1. Form a cone with your paper and, while pinching the top closed, insert styrofoam cone into paper cone, (note: leave plastic on cone so styrofoam can adhere to the decoupage.) Roll styrofoam cone until it’s completely covered with paper then trim bottom, leaving 1-2″ trim.
2. Partially unroll the paper from the styrofoam cone and using a foam brush, decoupage the wrapping paper closed. Lightly seal seam with decoupage.
3. Fold the edge of the wrapping paper under the cone and pushed deep into the styrofoam with pins. Once complete, repeat 2x with remaining cones.
Viola! Easy holiday decor that can be left up for the winter months as it’s not red and green, sweet!

Thanks ladies! You always have such pretty ideas. The trees are so perfect, and I love that you get to keep them out past Christmas too! Lolly Jane has tons of awesome ideas. Here are a few I think you’ll love:
These Felt Scalloped Winter Trees are so pretty! Such a clever way to add some fun to your holiday mantel!
And make sure to hop on over to their blog and learn how they made this adorable Let it Snow sign!
And, this Glittered Reindeer Antler Sign is so fun too! I love the black and white stripes for a non-traditional holiday look.

A big thanks for having us be your guesties in this series, Jen! Muah! XOXO
I love that paper – time to mosey over to target and pick some up (along with 692,739 things that I’ll see upon entry that I simply MUST have.)

Love the black chevron wrapping paper from Target! As a matter of fact I just used it to wrap a gift in my blog post today.
Super-easy, and there are so many cute wrapping papers out there. Love this idea! (And keeping the wrapper on — genius! So easy to re-use and re-cover another time.)
