Christmas Tree Party Decoration DIY
I threw my first
 Christmas party 
this weekend and 
I had a lot of fun looking through Pinterest 

and coming up with
 fun ideas:) 

{Thank you Pinterest and pinners:}

I am going to be sharing my ideas and tutorials all week this week. 
I figure they may still come in handy for you all before Christmas, and I did them all in
 2 days 
so there is plenty of time!

Today I will be showing you some
Christmas trees I made out of cupcake liners!

I got the original tutorial and idea HERE shared by Desiree at The 36th Avenue

I bought all my supplies (with the exception of my glue gun) from the dollar store!

White poster board, you could also use green or red!

 Christmas cupcake liners

Cut the board the sizes you would like your trees and roll into cones.
 {I had to cut the end to get it to balance correctly} 

Hot glue together.

Cut the center out of the liners.

Wrap the around the cone.
 I found gluing the top of the liner all the way around was the best fit.

 Make sure to have a great helper!;)

I also had some gold ribbon that I wrapped around as well!

They worked great for a little extra touch for the food table!

Look out for all the rest of my little Christmas tutorials this week!

Have a great one!
