Vintage Paper Christmas Tree – DIY

3 Materials
15 Minutes

Making handmade Christmas decorations were part of a holiday tradition as I was growing up at my house back in Europe. I remember as it was yesterday all those pretty things I was making with my Mom. She thought me a lot. I remember making lots of ornaments, paper garlands , all paper crafts and little people. We didn’t have much so most of our crafting materials were gathered on our walks in the park … Twigs, chestnuts, acorns, pine cones, clothespins and construction paper were our favorite materials to go to when Christmas tree crafting. Now I know why I love budget friendly Christmas decorations. Sweet memories that I like to preserve especially since my Mom is no longer present physically in our lives. I already shared some of my holiday decor ideas on my blog so check it out. Will try to list them on the bottom of this post. Check some of my paper craft ideas HERE

Didn’t have any newspapers laying around my house so I decided to use pages from the book I picked up at the Dollar Tree.

When you are done creating first stock of paper harmonica it is time to fold them in half as it shows in the picture below and install them on the thin twig with a help of Hot glue gun

As you can see base for our tree is done. Now it is time to pile up our paper harmonica in the rows.Your tree may look like a block now but don’t worry about your tree shape that can be corrected with scissors later.

I love bare trunk trees … so I decided to add another twig but thicker to the bottom as you can see on the picture below.

And it is done! I am for sure going to make more with my daughter! Love me some trees especially that I can use them all year round.

    So simple, yet so very cute! I’m going to, get my daughter, and youngest granddaughter, to make them with me.

    A nice little, family time project... Thanks for sharing! 😊
