I have seen so many uses for old book pages and I wanted to create something myself. I started by finding an old book and shredding a few dozen pages.
Next I bought a foam tree form at that Dollar store.
Then I wrapped a piece of double sided tape about 3/4" from the bottom.
Then I took the strips of the book pages and stuck them to the tape.
I repeated this process all the way around the cone and learned to overlap them just a bit so as to get better coverage. Once this was done, I started anew row about 1/2" from the first one and did the exact same process as before. Once I got to the top, I cut a circle of book page to cover the top of the cone.
I was almost done but it still needed a few tweaks.
As you can see it looks a little like Cousin It and needs to be trimmed. So I randomly cut the strips and wrinkled a few to make it look more like a tree.
Lastly I added a gold vine star to complete the project.
You can still see a little of the foam at the bottom and to change this I might either cover the bottom with a page piece or paint it the same color as the paper. Either way it was super fun to make and not too expensive either! Enjoy!
