A “green” Christmas: a tree out of recycled cardboard tubes!

We always have lots of recycling at home at that is ready to be used in our creative projects.  For example, cardboard tubes that with a little bit of imagination and colored wool can be turned into Christmas trees to be used to decorate the house during the holiday season!  

You will need

1 cardboard tube (from a paper towel roll)
green wool
golden bells

How to make it

Cut the cardboard tube into six slices.

Wrap each tube with the green wool.  Tie the slices at the end in a pyramid shape in order to make a tree.  I used the wool to tie them together but you can also use monofilament.

Add a small decoration to each slice, for our tree I decided to use little golden bells.  As an alternative you could use pompoms.

    I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your site. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems? A number of my blog audience have complained about my blog not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome. Do you have any recommendations to help fix this issue?
