My inner bookworm is absolutely in love with my latest DIY project – these paper Christmas trees made from the pages of A Christmas Carol
by Charles Dickens. I was able to find an old copy of the book at a local used bookstore for only $4, and I love that with the age of the book comes slightly yellowed pages. You could easily turn the smallest tree into an adorable Christmas ornament, but I’m currently loving the three trees together as festive decor in our living room.
30 pages from an old book – 10 for each tree
Christmas tree template from the wonderful, The Sweetest Occasion
Cut out the Christmas tree templates, and use it to trace onto one of the book pages.
Cut the pages into the tree shape – I was able to cut through all 10 pages at a time.
Place 2-3 staples along the center of the 10 tree pages.
Gently fold the tree along the crease of the staples, and fan out.
Repeat with the other two sizes.
