Did you know you can make a paper chain tree for your Christmas decor? It's a quick and simple project, and even the children can help.
I needed a decoration like this for our caravan as a conventional tree would have been too large. This one fits nicely on my wall.
You might like one for your entrance way, refrigerator, or somewhere else that just needs a touch of brightening up. In that case, you may want to add to your chains and make the tree even bigger.
I once showed you how to make adhesive-free paper chains. Now I can show you a way to use them to make some Christmas decor by making this paper chain tree.
You will need:
I did use a few strips of Stampin' Up! champagne foil paper for some of my links.
NOTE: Feel free to use your own combination of papers and patterns, of course. It is best to try to use the same weight of paper for the entire project to keep it from putting too much strain on any one point, but mine even worked when I just used a few pieces of heavier card stock (the foiled paper).
You are done with the basic idea here, but there are a few other ideas I thought of:
However you make your decor, now stand back and admire your beautiful new decoration!
