Don't know about you all out there - but I NEED these trees! I intend dotting them on every available windowsill.

 Here are two very different styles: choose your favourite. I especially like Karina's tutorial on Creative Chaos as you don't even need a special cone (although you do, preferably need a sewing machine for the crepe paper - though I'm pretty sure I've seen it for sale already pre-gathered) as she makes her cones from ordinary A4 paper. Yes, I can see how this could become an obsession....

Coyright Cindy for Joli Paquet
This one's by Cindy for Joli Paquet - no sewing involved, just a glue gun. And a bit of pleating. So easy! No special skills required as long as you keep your fingers out of the glue! A totally different look, more casual and colourful - I bet this would be a total wow on the table at children's parties!

Even more with gathered crepe paper - so many ideas, so little time....

Stunning, whichever style you choose!

  2. Wow love that 1st tree Susie, well they are all great but think that is my favourite

  3. Those trees are fun. Bring back memories for sure. I like the ones on the boxes.
