I made pumpkins out of paperback books, so why not Christmas Trees?? Same principle. Cut half of a tree shape all the way through the book. Glue covers together. This time I splurged for spray paint, with the pumpkins I painted on acrylic paint and it worked well. I used glue, white embossing powder, and glitter for the snow. The star toppers were in the miniatures section at Michael's. I wrapped wire around their bottoms and stuck the wire down the hole in the middle of the tree. The tall one in the back I glued a round chop stick in the middle when I glued the covers together. I need to find a cute little jar, fill it with Epsom salt for the snowy look, paint the chop stick dark brown and stick the tree in.
