Today, put a live Christmas tree in the house or simply spruce branches for the aroma is not difficult. But in order to decorate the house in an original way, to make a gift to a close person, it is not necessary to buy it in a shop or on the street - you can look into our article and learn how to make a Christmas tree with your own hands.

Paper is probably one of the most common materials for creativity. No wonder the herringbone can also be made of paper.
Here, for example, is an interesting idea of creating a Christmas tree from magazines.
A cone is made of dense cardboard, fixed with glue. The pages of the magazine are cut into circles or a figured punch, scissors. The blanks are slightly curled and glued to the cone, starting from the bottom. The top of the tree is decorated with a small cone from the same circle.
Also creative Christmas tree is made of wrapping paper.
For its creation, paste a cardboard cone with beautiful wrapping paper and decorate to your taste: sequins, beads, ribbons or buttons.
For the next version of the Christmas tree cone is not needed: on the skewer fixed in the base, we put on circles of beautiful paper of different diameters, starting with the largest one. The top can also be decorated with a paper star.
To create such a product, flowers made of napkins are also suitable.
We are fastening a multi-layer napkin with a stapler, cut out a circle. Each layer alternately fingers to the center. Flowers made in this way, we glue to the already familiar cardboard cone.
An interesting option can be a Christmas tree made of plastic bottles. To create a small sample of a fluffy beauty you will need:
- a pair of green bottles;
- adhesive tape;
- sheet of paper.
From the neck of the bottle make a stand. In it we insert a tube from a sheet of paper. We cut the bottles into rings with a width of 8-9 cm. For a fluffy bottom, cut the ring into 2 parts, then divide into an increasing number of parts - 3, 4. Cut the fringe, leaving the edge in 0.5 cm. Begin to collect rows of branches from the base, graduallymoving up. The crown can be made by making a small cone from the bottle. It remains only to decorate. We hope that this little master will help you in creating a green miracle.
