My son brought home a paper bag tree from kindergarten art class and I thought it was so cute. I decided to take it a step further and turn into a pretty decoration.
- Brown Paper Bag
- Paper Towel Roll
- Plastic branches with green leaves
- Moss sheets
- White Glue
- Glue Gun
- Battery Operated Fairy Lights
- Wood base
Cut off the base of the brown paper bag and wrap it around the paper towel roll. Fill the paper towel roll with rocks to weigh it down.
Cut strips of the paper on the top part of the bag and twist them to form branches. Create more branches from another paper bag and glue the on the base if you want a fuller tree.
Use the hot glue gun and attach it to the wooden base to secure the tree.
Paint the entire tree with with glue and let dry. This will help harden the paper and make the tree more stable.
Glue plastic branches to the center of the tree to create a full, vibrant tree. Glue sheets of moss to the wooden base and add rocks where the moss meets the tree to hide the seams.
Add lights to illuminate your design.
