Weekly updates from BLDG 25


ah! loving these little magazine christmas trees and how easy they are to make! i saw them on the blog green eyed monster and thought it was such an awesome idea for using old magazines. i of course have a ton of free people catalogs lying around so i thought… why not? i decided to use our november catalog since its nice and thick and i knew it would make a great tree.


start by folding the first page over as pictured above.


next fold the same page over again, and then fold up the part hanging over the bottom so that you have a straight edge along the bottom.


repeat this step on every page of the magazine – i actually thought it was kinda cool to see how different pages looked folded together like a collage.


once all your pages are folded, stand the tree up and spread out the pages until you’re happy with how it looks! and of course, the more the merrier :)

We used to make these in grade school art class! Once we were finished we would spray paint them with silver and gold glitter.

Maybe it is better if we dye it into green color and little white spots.
