Brighten your holiday home with these easy trim wrapped Christmas trees! You can do this easy Christmas craft while watching your favorite Christmas movie – I’m partial to It’s a Wonderful Life, myself.
This easy craft is perfect for using up leftover bits of ribbon and trim. Use red and white and you can pull these festive trees back out again for Valentine’s Day.
How to Make Trim Wrapped Christmas Trees
All my supplies for making this Christmas craft came from Michael’s Craft Store. You’ll find the papermache cones near the wood section. The trim came from the dollar bins. Don’t forget to check the clearance bins for leftover Thanksgiving trim you can use with the Christmas trim.
- Paper-Mache Cone, 13.75 by 5-Inch
- Trim from dollar section of Michael’s Craft Store
- Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
Depending on how you want the trim to appear on the tree, start wrapping and gluing the trim in place at the bottom or the top of the cardboard cone. I prefer to start at the bottom and work my way up. I put on a little glue at a time and carefully press the trim in place. Always be mindful of the hot glue.
If you have trim that doesn’t completely cover the cardboard, layer on another color over top. When I used rick rack, I put fuzzy trim over top to cover the holes.
