Toilet Roll Christmas Tree

I recently guest posted over on BusyBeeMummyBex showing how we were making some homemade Christmas decorations, we started with paper chains. Well over the past few weeks we have been saving up the empty toilet rolls, what could we possibly make with these, well a Christmas tree of course.

You will need :

* 16 toilets rolls
* double sided sticky tape
* glue stick
* paint brush
* green paint to paint the tree
* decorations to stick on
* other colour paints 

The first thing you need to do is stick all the toilet rolls together. I used double sided sticky tape to stick each of them to one another. I then stuck the tree to a cardboard base.

You then need to paint all of the toilet rolls green, making sure to paint in all the little gaps and any showing sticky tape too.

Once the paint has dried it is time to stick on all of the sparkly decorations on to the tree.

Finally paint present boxes on the cardboard base because no Christmas tree is complete without presents underneath it.

Have you made any homemade decorations this year?

  1. What a fun craft! Could fill them with goodies, cover with some tissue paper on the front and turn it into an advent calendar next year! x
