On New Year's Eve, each family seeks to acquire the main attribute of the upcoming holiday - a New Year tree. Despite the heady coniferous aroma of live spruce, today many people prefer an artificial tree, which does not require further disposal and annual financial costs. And if you approach this issue creatively, then you can make an unusual and beautiful Christmas tree with your own hands.
In the process of creating a New Year's miracle tree, you can use various materials: coffee beans, tinsel, candies in a bright wrapper, yarn, wrapping paper, buttons, pasta, lemon wedges, fir cones, etc. The base, as a rule, is a cone made of thick cardboard or foam.
Christmas tree made from coffee beans
We paint the conical foam base with brown or golden acrylic paint. After the paint has completely dried, you can start decorating the Christmas tree. To do this, we collect silicone into a syringe without a needle, apply it to a small section of the cone and begin to lay the coffee beans tightly, occasionally diluting them with large beads.
We decorate the tree with Christmas tree beads, and glue a decorative star or a large bead on the top. We make several bows from a thin satin ribbon and attach them to the tree with pins. If desired, the New Year's craft can be decorated with artificial foam made of foam by gluing the grains with the help of colorless varnish. Such a Christmas tree will not only delight the eye with its unusual design, but also fill the house with a noble coffee aroma.
Christmas tree made of wrapping paper
A Christmas tree made of wrapping paper is perhaps one of the easiest and fastest Christmas crafts to make, which will bring a festive mood to the interior. To make such a Christmas tree, we make a cone from a sheet of cardboard or thick paper. We fix the edges of the cone with tape. In the lower part of the resulting figure, cut off all unnecessary so that the base is even.
Place the bright brown paper face down on a flat surface. We glue one end of the wrapping paper with tape to the top of the cone, after which we begin to slowly wrap it in colored paper. We measure out the amount of paper needed to wrap the cone and cut off the rest. Glue thin strips of double-sided tape around the edges of the paper to hold the product together. At the base, we also cut off all unnecessary.
Now all that remains is to decorate the resulting Christmas tree with a decorative star, sparkles, rhinestones, stickers, etc. To decorate the interior, it is better to make several of these trees at once from paper of different colors and textures, because in the kit they will look especially original.
Button Christmas tree
A Christmas tree made of buttons is a beautiful and easy-to-make festive decoration that you can make with your children. To create such a decor, you will need a ready-made foam base in the form of a cone, pins and a large number of buttons of different colors and sizes. We fasten the buttons to the base with pins, placing them close to each other. The color scheme can be any: you can make a classic green Christmas tree with colorful balls or use a combination of several non-standard shades.
Christmas tree made of threads
From ordinary cotton threads, you can make a light, airy and original Christmas tree. The thread color does not have to be green. A tree made of white, golden and even burgundy threads will look no less impressive.
We make a cone from thick paper - it will serve as a frame for the future New Year's beauty. We wrap the resulting structure with cling film. Pour PVA glue into a deep plate and put a skein of thread into it so that they are properly soaked. Then we begin to wrap the cone with threads from top to bottom, leaving small gaps.
Let the craft dry, then take out the cone and carefully remove the film. We decorate the newly made Christmas tree according to our own taste: it can be snowflakes, sparkles, beads, sequins and other decorative materials. We glue a star or bow to the top. Such a tree will look especially impressive if a garland is placed inside the structure.
Christmas tree made from a bottle of champagne, tinsel and candies
A bottle of champagne decorated with sweets and tinsel will be a wonderful New Year's gift for a loved one. Such a tree is made very simply and quickly, so you will have time to arrange a present even on the day of the New Year's party. To do this, a bottle of champagne must be wrapped in tinsel. You need to start from the neck, gradually moving towards the base of the bottle. It is better to fix the tinsel to the glass surface with hot glue (glue gun with a silicone rod). The ends of the tinsel at the neck and at the base must be wrapped so that they are not visible.
Next, you need to glue chocolates in a beautiful wrapper to the bottle, which will imitate Christmas tree decorations. The top of the New Year's souvenir can be decorated with a beautiful bow to match the candy wrapper, or you can glue a soft toy - a symbol of the coming year.
Christmas tree with lemon slices
For fans of eco-style and lovers of citrus aroma, the Christmas tree made of lemon slices will be a wonderful gift for the New Year. Before you start making a Christmas tree, you need to dry the lemon wedges. To do this, cut the lemons into thin circles and dry them naturally or in the oven.
When the main element of the craft is ready, we coat the frame for the Christmas tree in the form of a cone with glue and wrap it with rope to hide the gaps between the citrus slices. Then we begin to peck the base with dried lemon slices, trying to place them as close to each other as possible. We decorate the gaps with other natural materials: cones, nuts or dried berries.
Sisal Christmas tree
Sisal is a material with an unusual texture, so crafts made from it have a very original look. A sisal Christmas tree will look especially impressive in the interior. To make such a tree, it is necessary to paint the Whatman paper in the color of the selected sisal. When the paint is dry, fold the paper into a cone and seal the edges with glue. Cut the base for the cone from thick cardboard. After that, we take the iron wire and thread it through the cone, securing it with tape at the top.
We cover the frame for the future Christmas tree with a dense layer of sisal. You should start the winding from the top of the head: first, we wind the end of the metal wire, after which we smoothly move to the base of whatman paper. We glue the ends of each strand of sisal to the cone, cut off all that remains to stick out to the sides. To give the sisal tree a neat look, lightly crush it with your hands.
The next step is to make a Christmas tree stand. For this we take a plastic cup and Chinese sticks. We connect the sticks together and wrap them tightly with threads. To keep the tree well inside the pot, place a piece of styrofoam in it. We insert one end of the trunk made of wooden sticks into the cardboard base of the Christmas tree, and the other into a glass with foam. Glue cotton wool inside the pot, which will simulate a snow cover. The sisal tree is ready, it remains only to decorate it with sparkles, stars, beads, bows, flowers and other trinkets.
Christmas tree made of pasta
A Christmas tree made from pasta looks just gorgeous, you can use it to decorate the New Year's table or present it as a New Year's gift. To create such a Christmas tree, you will need pasta (spirals, tubes or bows), acrylic paints and a cone-shaped cardboard base.
Attaching pasta to the base with PVA glue will not work; a glue gun is best suited for these purposes. Pasta should be glued from the base of the cone, gradually rising to the top. When the craft dries up, paint over each "twig" of pasta with acrylic paint.
If you do not plan to use decorative elements, then it is better to paint the product with gold or silver paint. The green Christmas tree can be decorated with rhinestones, beads or bows. Pasta of a different shape and color will look especially original as a decoration.
Christmas tree made of felt
You can also make a cute Christmas tree from pieces of felt fabric. For crafts, it is better to use several tones of the same color - this will give the tree a more natural and voluminous look. The color of the felt does not have to be green, non-standard shades are welcome. First you need to make a cone-shaped frame made of cardboard or foam. Then cut out circles of different diameters from patches of felt fabric. To do this, use the pre-prepared templates in the form of cardboard circles.
Decorate the bottom of the cone with tinsel. In each circle we make a small hole in the center. Next, we begin to gradually string the circles of fabric onto the cone, alternating them in size (from the largest to the smallest). Glue a felt cone to the top of the tree and decorate the finished tree to your liking.
Christmas tree made of Christmas balls
A Christmas tree decorated with balls looks beautiful, elegant and festive. Imagine how bright and impressive a Christmas tree completely made of Christmas balls will look. To work, you will need a foam cone, a glue gun and Christmas balls in different colors. You should start gluing the balls to the base from the bottom, moving in a circle and alternating in a certain order the different colors of the Christmas balls. Decorate the top of the resulting tree with a star or snowflake. The gaps between the balls can be masked with tinsel, Christmas tree beads, organza or lace trims.
