This is an advertorial and I received a fee to create a Christmas craft idea for https://www.tescoliving.com/making-and-doing
It’s not very often that I get a chance to get crafty these days now that the kids have decided that they’re too old for crafting so when the rather lovely people from Tesco Living asked me if I wanted to join in with their 25 days of handmade Christmas crafting by having a go at putting a new spin on their idea of making paper trees I dusted off my craft box and put my thinking cap on!
I wasn’t sure what my twist would be until we unpacked our Christmas decorations box and I found a book that we’ve had since Miss Frugal was a toddler. Every year we’ve all got it out and read it together but this year it was just put to one side with both her and Master Frugal declaring they were too old for babyish books this year.
I was a bit sad but then I got the inspiration for my twist – I decided to use the book to make the paper trees!
If they were too old to read the book itself then I’d make it into a gorgeous decoration that I could bring out each year instead!
You can see the results over on Tesco Living along with my step by step instructions but because I’m a lovely blogger, here’s a sneak peak of how it looks about half way through being made….
Please do pop over and see what the finished tree looks like as I’m really pleased with it and everyone who’s been in my house since I put it on the sideboard has commented on how lovely it looks!
If you feel like a bit of Christmas crafting, these paper trees really are easy to make and look beautiful when they’re finished. You could also have a look at a Tori-Jayne s very clever crafty twists on a handmade Christmas bauble here.
