This is a Christmas tree I made last year out of vintage book pages. It was really simple but very time consuming.
Start with a styrofoam cone - a size of your choice - and start cutting out squares of vintage book pages. I used squares about 1 1/2". Starting at the bottom, scrunch the square up in the middle and put a straight pin thru the center. I dip the pin point in white glue and insert in the cone. Go around the bottom and work your way up.
When you get finished, check it over to see if you have any bare spots. If so, just add another square and work it in.
When I finished, it needed something on the top. So, I went to HL and found this topper in the miniature section. I covered it with the book pages. You must cut the pieces very SMALL and use Mod Podge and gently work the pieces down until it is all smooth.
These would be so cute if you made several in different sizes and made an arrangement.
NOTE: The very, very old book pages are really brittle. You are much better off using a newer "old" book. You can tell immediately because it will break when you scrunch it.
Till next time, Judy
