Recycling Paperbacks and Magazines into Holiday Trees

Posted on December 9, 2010 at 5:50 PM

I blogged about making Christmas trees as decorations in an earlier blog but here I'm showing off my versions of this tree. One is a simple one just like Martha's Christmas tree but I did not fold the bottom of mine as instructed. Instead I placed a faux trunk to the bottom (a piece of bark glued on to a short length of paper towel roll. I think it looks just dandy. By the way, I don't bother gluing my paperback book trees as they seem to hold up just fine without glue.

This one is the tree that was in my Ottawa Citizen article. It has three tiers instead of one and was a little more complicated to make but it's kind of nifty. 

What, no comments??
