Blogmas Day 11: DIY Christmas Tree (Guest Post By Tam)

Hello everyone! Today's Blogmas post is something a little different for my blog, it's to do with DIY and crafts so this should be fun! Tamara from Me Just Talking To You has typed this one up for me so make sure you check out her blog once you've had a read of this!

Hello! Today I'm talking Christmas decorations...This is my favourite part of the christmas period! It's so festive when decorations go up, gives you this warm and cosy feeling in your stomach! Now if you a student or like me have a puppy who will just destroy the tree and all the baubles with it, then I have just the ticket for you...Here is my DIY Christmas Tree! All you will need is a book you don't want any more (if you don't have one pop to your local charity shop or such and buy a cheap book there to use.) You will also need a bit of patience for this I'm Afraid.

Firstly open the book and with the very first page, you take the top right corner and fold it in to the crease of the book. Next you take the folded edge and fold that into the crease of the book and then just fold the little bit handing over the edge at the bottom, up into itself so that you have a flat edge bottom.

The final step is most definitely the important one: keep repeating until you have done every page and you till end up with a Christmas made out of a book! When you start nearing the middle it will become a bit harder and harder but I promise if you keep going you'll love the finish product! 

I think these look so unique, well I've never seen one in anyone's house before! Then you can leave them as they are or you could get some paint and paint it green with some baubles on too or you could even cut out triangles from the edges to give it that tree look with arms!

Well I hope you have enjoy this little DIY project! And if you attempt this, don't forget to Instagram and photo and tag me in it (tamaratiaxo) so I can see all of your wonderful DIY  Christmas Trees!

It's me, Aymie Louise again. Thanks for reading Tam's guest post, it's been an interesting one! I have to say though, I don't think I have it in me to destroy a book...

  1. Lovely tree!

    I'm always destroying books [for crafting purposes] and - like Tamara says - charity shops [or car boot sales etc] are the best places to buy them. After all ... they're only going to end up in landfill otherwise.

    1. I'm pleased you enjoyed it! I feel like I should be doing more DIY posts but I've been too busy for that this year. Maybe it should be a NY resolution!
