Comments - How to: Make a Fun and Festive Space-Saving Christmas Tree

Shauna on Nov 28, 2015:

I really like this, but I am wondering if there would be a way for me to hang some of my kids personal ornaments??

Awesome idea for small apartments like mine! :) Added a small spotlight (from Ikea) above my tree - makes a world of a difference! 

Blessed Christmas everybody! :)

Oh I loved this idea! Thanks for sharing. It turned out even better than I hoped. I also stole the books for a trunk idea. I ended up addding lights to brighten up the corner it was in.

This is so cute! Would be great for those creative types who live in small spaces or may be even at schools and let the children help make it.

Neat project! Excellent space saver and it would be a fun backdrop for pics. Merry Days! :)

Hey Britney. I got the tissue paper at hobby lobby and the tissue color would best be described as mint colored. Good luck!

Love this! Where did you get the tissue paper, and what is that color called?
