Christmas Trees from Catalogues

Hello everyone - here I am again to show you how I have been wasting (?) my time making this tree out of a catalogue. If you need instructions just go to Pinterest and search for the title of this post and many will come up for you. I am making trees as part of a demo I am doing at our church ladies meeting in December and thought I would let you see how busy I've been LOL !!!! I took off the front and back cover of the catalogue and laboriously folded well over a hundred pages - stuck the first and last page together and a few others as well which were showing a bit wide....sprayed with gold and sprinkled with glitter.....added a few stars here and there and one for the top. I then stuck the base unto an empty ribbon spool to make it easier lifted. I don't think anyone who will be at the meeting will be aware of my blog so probably ok to show.


  1. Ah welcome back to blogland dear Joyce, long to see more of your cards, but can understand why blogging is in the backseat struggling to find time to blog myself.

  2. Hello Joyce~ I remember making these Christmas trees from magazines when I was a little girl. Spray painting them was my favorite part! Thanks so much for visiting my blog and leaving such a kind comment. I'm so glad you did! It's wonderful to have a friend across the pond. ;0)
