i knew i wanted to include some new little tabletop trees to my decor this year- i wanted something a little more neutral than the ones i've made in the past. i decided to try a variation of the curly book page trees you see everywhere, except i didn't want mine quite so curly- more like flippy.
flippy bookpage trees
i was in the dollar tree, planning to get some party hats to use as my tree bases when i saw these! i was seriously irrationally happy that they're carrying these this year & seriously resisting the urge to hoard up 20 or 30 of them...
all i did from there was tear some book pages into strips, cutting a fringe in one half of the long side. i bent up the fringe ever so slightly until it looked like a little skirt. the non-fringed edge is what you glue to the cone:
my thrifty candlesticks, to give a bit of background to our nativity. stick around a few more days to see what i did with the smaller 2 dollar store trees!
