Recycled Magazine Christmas Tree

Last year, I handmade Christmas trees for Richard’s family out of old magazines. I used a craft tutorial from Just Like Martha. I know this post is very belated but better late than never! Anyway, I think the recycled magazine Christmas Tree can be used all year round as a home decoration. Like suggested in the tutorial, you can spray paint them to suit your interior decor. I left it to his family to add any finishing touches.

Hours of folding and not one papercut! :P I’m just glad they actually liked their paper trees. Plus, I get to recycle and craft at the same time.

Funnily enough, Richard’s brother, James, wrapped all his Christmas presents with old magazines too, even the extremely large Guitar Hero World Tour box! The recycled magazine wrapping didn’t stay on for long and the family was jamming away in no time. Rock on!

    ha that photo of the band cracks me up. Lyra says she wants to play “Wock guitar” when she wants us to play guitar hero :-) . So that is what the guys in your pic are doing- wock guitar.

      LOL! She’s so cute! I could barely understand Lyra when she was speaking to me the other day. Good thing you were there to translate for her. Tell her, Salihan said, “WOCK ON!”

    I made some of these trees too for Christmas!! I was hooked on them and made them with every magazine I laid my eyes on. :)

    It is very addictive isn’t it? I was looking for more magazines the other day to make some for my home but I had thrown them all out. :(

    Did your family like them, Nadine?
