DIY: How To Make A Cardboard Christmas Tree
Have you ever had an idea and you weren’t sure how to make it a reality but for some reason you knew deep down that it was going to work?
Something similar happened to me not to long ago. So I’ve been wanting to buy a cardboard Christmas tree since for a while now, I didn’t want to deal with a real Christmas tree in my tiny apartment, plus I wanted something modern and creative. Well, my dream came true last week, just when I was planning where to buy my cardboard Christmas tree, we had to buy a new couch, and this couch just happened to come in a really big box and I almost felt the cartoon light bulb pop up above my head, I was going to make my own cardboard Christmas tree!
At first I had no idea how I would make it but I was pretty sure it was going to work and guess what? It did!
Here’s what I did to make my awesome modern looking Cardboard Christmas tree.
1. Find a box. Small box = Small tree // Big box = Big tree, any box should work!
6. Draw a line from the top down to about the middle of one of your 2D cardboard Christmas trees and cut the line out using a pair of scissors, the final cut out line should be about a quarter inch wide, about the depth of a piece of cardboard. Now do the same with your second 2D cardboard Christmas tree, but this time draw your line from the bottom up to about the middle, and again cut the line out with a pair of scissors. See picture #6
What do you think about my cardboard Christmas tree?
I really love it, it looks so great that I almost forgot it was just a big box a few days ago, and my favorite part is that it is exactly the right size, just perfect!
