Paper Tube Christmas Tree Ornament

Decorate with glitter and beads or with sequins like we did. Easy and economical and lots of fun.


Cardboard Tubes
Hole Punch
Green Paint and Foam Brush
Tacky Glue and Toothpicks
Tissue Paper
Rat-tail Satin Cord


Cut tubes into six 1" rings. Paint green. Let dry.

Glue the rings together to form the shape of a tree as shown above. 

Punch a hole in the top ring and tie on a piece of cord to make a hanger.

Spread a thin layer of tacky glue inside each ring.

Crumple up 1/4 sheets of green tissue paper and push a piece into each tube ring. Use a toothpick and dab glue on tissue.

Place a sequin on each dab of glue.
