I just love Christmas crafting, and I especially love making trees of all kinds. This weekend I made this Christmas tree out of packages of presents that I found at the dollar store. It was so easy to make and only took about 45 minutes. I just love quick and simple crafts, especially at this time of year.
I cut a circle out of a picture cardboard backing that I saved, and spray painted it green. This circle gives the tree a solid base.
Then I just glued on the presents with my glue gun, starting at the bottom with the largest and working my way up. With each level up I went slightly inward. Here’s a view of how it looks from the bottom.
Here’s a close up of the presents. They’re so pretty with all the different colours. I kept the bows on the outside so they would be the decorations on the tree.
I did two rows of the largest presents and three rows each of the next three sizes. Then I simply added a present on top. Soooo simple!! The finished tree is about 7″ wide at the bottom, and about 13″ tall.
I used about 6 1/2 packages of the presents so it cost me $6.50. This is actually a little on the expensive side for me, but I just loved these cute presents and I couldn’t resist making this tree. I think it’s so pretty.
Don’t forget to pin it!
Thanks so much for reading, and until next time…
keep on keepin’ on!
