Every year when I pull out the Christmas decorations I am amazed by two things. These two beautiful Christmas trees that I made five years ago. Out of paper. Paper!!! Card stock really, but still! Five years!
Last week I wrote about how my pencil Christmas Tree is perfect for our small space. Did you see it? I am thrilled with how it looks. And it really is perfect for our space and fits in with our quest to scale back, streamline, and simplify our lives by getting rid of excess “stuff”.

I have this slight obsession with paper medallions. I just knew I had to use them in some way for Christmas decorating. Take a look at my Paper Medallion Christmas Tree using sheets of double-sided card stock. See the full tutorial on how to make this medallion Christmas tree here.
Have you ever made rolled paper roses? I did once a while ago and was surprised at how easy it is and how pretty the paper roses are. I have seen trees covered in paper roses in HomeGoods and Target. Although the roses on their trees seem more like very thin wood, I made my version with card stock.
The rolled rose tree was easy to make, it just took a bit of time to roll all of those roses! See the full tutorial here.

So pretty! The papers you used to make this tree are sooooooo pretty!
Love your paper trees Jeanie. I made a large book paper rose tree back in about 2011 and I still remember rolling those roses day after day. I get comments every year when I bring it out and would love to make another one (especially love your deep red one), but oh that rose rolling memory is still lingering – lol.
Thank you for sharing at Create, Bake, Grow & Gather this week. I’m delighted to be featuring your project at tonight’s party.
Happy New Year!!
Wow JEANIE! You just give some awesome idea of Christmas Trees. Like it! Keep it up.
