Small Tissue Paper Christmas Trees

I've long wanted to find an alternative for styrofoam cones and I'm delighted to have found a great idea.  You can use styrofoam if you wish but this tutorial will also show you how to easily make a cone shape.

Materials:
- tissue paper (10 sheets for large tree and 6-8 for medium tree)
- styrofoam trees or homemade card trees
- lots of glue

Make a whole load of flowers like this and then start to glue them from the bottom of your cone.

Glue them close enough so you do not see the cone but not so close as to overcrowd the flowers.

So, now for showing you how to make your own cones.

 

 

Here are some other shaped flowers you can make to cover other cones.

If you make several trees all with different textures it makes for a really interesting display.
