Supplies

NOTE: You can paint these whatever colors you choose and decorate them however you wish. Below are the general items we used. For the gold branches on top, we cut pieces off some old holiday greenery we had.) Also, you don’t have to use the cup base unless desired. Which means you won’t need a dowel. You can just set the trees flat on any surface and they still look great!

 

Instructions

Cut them various sizes to make your trees different levels. Measure carefully.Looking for a simple DIY holiday craft? Make these plastic cup Christmas tree tabletop decor with champaign flutes from the dollar store!

We tested using a long glue stick to hold our trees up. It will work if tapered with scissors to fit but it is a bit bendy.Looking for a simple DIY holiday craft? Make these plastic cup Christmas tree tabletop decor with champaign flutes from the dollar store!

Hot glue any items you want on the top of your tree.

Remember, the bases are optional. These trees would look nice sitting on a flat surface.

    Original ideas for New Year’s decor. Now on the Internet, there are a lot of options for decorating a house for Christmas and New Year. My wife doesn’t surf the internet. What I like most is that there are many ideas you can do with your kids. It will turn out to be a fun and rewarding pastime. Tell me if you have ideas for decorating only inside the house or there are articles on the decor of the facade. I noticed that many of my neighbors have new garlands, someone even puts a snow cannon to force the snow onto their lawn. I don’t know how rational it is. Underground irrigation is laid in my yard. I am afraid that the snow might clog it My friends from HVAC Contractors calmed me down, But I still decided that this year there will be pragmatists only with a natural snag.
