It's nearly Christmas! *Cue carol singing*
I am very very excited and I hope you all are too :)
Today, I am collaborating with Elsa from Crafty Hands and Pretty Nails, to bring you a fun and festive DIY.
I am going to be making a DIY Christmas Tree from a magazine, something I really wanted to share with you guys in time for the festive season. I was taught how to make these in Guides a couple of weeks back, and they are so easy and simple to put together. It requires no glue, or scissors, just a magazine and a festive spirit.
It's the perfect decoration to make whilst in front of the TV.
So here we go!
You will need:
An old magazine (or a catalog)
|Here are some examples of what your end-product will look like.|
|Step One - Choose some magazines that you want to use. Make sure that you're okay to use them.|
|Step Two - Remove the front and back covers of your chosen magazine.|
|Step Three - You will be left with the main body of the magazine.|
|Step Four - Fold your page diagonally into a right-angled triangle.|
|Step Five - Fold the triangle into the edge of the magazine.|
|Step Six - It should look like the shape of a tie.|
|Step Seven - Fold the bottom paper upwards into a small triangle.|
|Step Eight - Fold over your page and repeat the process until it's complete.|
|Step Nine- When you are finished, your magazine should look like this.|
|Step Ten - Stand your magazine up and spread out the pages evenly, until it's stable.|
|Step Eleven - You can choose to decorate your tree. I used a pipe cleaner and gold paper to make a star decoration,|
|Step Twelve - Congratulations! Your Tree is complete ☺|
