It’s always fun to find a way to recycle and reuse something you have at home…to give something, that would otherwise end up in the trash or the recycling bin, a new life. This super easy project takes one of the oodles of catalogues that stuff my mailbox this time of year and, with a little folding, turns it into a Christmas decoration.
Behold, my Magazine Christmas Tree….Ta Da!
Step One: Fold down the corner of the page as shown.
Now, continue steps one through four over and over (AND over again) until your tree feels full enough. Depending on the thickness of the magazine you chose to work with, this might be the entire magazine or only part of it. (If it is only part, you can carefully tear off the extra pages.) I then used a few glue dots and attached the first and the last pages together so the tree stood nicely.
I must admit, this was not a quick project. Super easy, yes…but not exactly fast. It’s a lot of folding. I ended up doing most of it while Mike and I watched TV at night. That being said, I love my little Magazine Christmas Tree. I used a Restoration Hardware catalogue because I liked that the pages were full of black, white and neutral photos. Of course it you want your tree to be more colorful, just pick a colorful magazine to work with.
Oh (recycled magazine) Christmas Tree, Oh (recycled magazine) Christmas Tree…Your folded pages make me so happy!
