DIY Crepe Paper Tree

DIY Christmas CraftsI know, I know, it is not even Thanksgiving yet, but I have moved right onto Christmas decor.  Blame Dollar Tree.  I innocently stopped by there to kill some time before the pharmacy opened, and I had no choice but to buy supplies to make this crepe paper tree.  Super easy project that cost a total of $3 plus a few supplies I had on hand.  This sweet little tree can be made in any color to coordinate with your own holiday decor.


  • Glue gun
  • Cemetery vase from Dollar Tree, or Styrofoam cone shape
  • Crepe paper
  • Tree topper ornament from Dollar Tree
  • Foam base from Dollar Tree floral section (optional)

  • You can glue and pleat as you go along, or pleat strips of the crepe paper, then glue them to the cone shape.  I switched randomly between both methods.  They both took about the same amount of time.  This was a 30 minute project.

  • Once you have covered your entire cone, embellish as you like.  I covered the foam base in burlap with hot glue, then glued it to the crepe covered vase for a tree trunk.  Hot glue an ornament to the top for a star, spritz tree with glitter mist, or paint little polka dot ornaments.  I left it simple, and absolutely love it.
