Directions: How to Make Scrapbook Paper Christmas Trees

Step 1: Gather Your Trees

I found these simple, cute trees at Michaels and removed the eye screws.

If you want to make your own trees, you can easily cut some out of plywood.

Step 2: A Little Paint

Paint the trees gray. One coat is enough. You just want to cover the raw wood.

Step 3: Select Christmas Scrapbook Paper

Look for some Christmas scrapbook paper. There are so many great designs available!

I found some great plaid and holly scrapbook paper. I went traditional colors, but you can go with silvers and blue too! Snowflakes are also a great option!

Step 4: Cut Around The Trees

Break out your craft knife and cut around the Christmas trees.

Step 5: Cut Off The Stem

Trim off the stem. You can leave it on, but I like the look of the gray wood for the stem.

Step 6: Glue It!

Use stick glue and put it all over the back of the cut outs. Get right up to the edges.
