Christmas Tree Forest


In one of our spare bedrooms, we have twin beds and a closet full of toys and games. We call this the “Grandkid Room” for fairly obvious reasons. There’s a built-in desk, and for the holidays every year, I put cotton batting and an assortment of Christmas trees. Some trees I’ve purchased; many I’ve made. Every year, I add one or two, so our forest is slowly growing.

In today’s post, I’ll show you each of the trees I’ve made, along with a caption describing the process. They all began with either a styrofoam or a papier mache cone. Maybe you’ll be inspired to try a tree or two!
