Easy Christmas Crafts: Stacked Doily Christmas Tree


The Stacked Doily Christmas Tree is a fun and easy project using paper doilies and a small piece of foil or colorful paper.

These are decorated with shiny sequins, but you could easily substitute colorful hole-punch holes.

The project is also fast and useful when several small and inexpensive decorations are needed.

Take a look at this one with its topper cut out with decorative scissors:

The Steps for How to Make the Easy Christmas Crafts: Stacked Doily Christmas Tree:

Use a compass or a round object with a 2-inch diameter to draw a circle on the foil or topper paper.

Cut around the circle with scissors - either plain or decorative edge scissors.

Open the circle and fold in half again perpendicular to the first fold with the decorative side facing outward.

Open the circle and fold in half again halfway between the two earlier folds.

This time the decorative side should be facing inward.

Open the circle and with the decorative side facing outward, fold the circle along the previous fold lines to form a triangular shape.

Place a small amount of glue on the top point of the largest doily.

Slide the middle-sized doily's folds over the large doily's folds.

For the illusion of tree branches, don't push the middle doily all the way down the large doily.

Press the middle-sized doily onto the glue.

Place a small amount of glue at the top point of the middle-sized doily.

Prepare the tree's decorations - either sequins or colorful hole-punch holes.

Squeeze a small amount of glue onto a piece of scrap paper.

Stacked Doily Christmas Tree step 10 prepare glue and sequins

Using the point of the bent paper clip, apply a small amount of glue to the back of a sequin and position it on the first side of the tree.

Glue as many or as few "ornaments" as you prefer to the tree.

Stacked Doily Christmas Tree step 11 glue sequins on first side

Turn the tree to the opposite side and glue more ornaments to the second side.

Cut a piece of yarn 8-10 inches long.

This is gold lamé yarn, but it could be any type yarn or thread you have on hand.

Glue one end of the yarn in each side fold of the topper.

The bent paper clip helps position the glue and the ends of the yarn into the folds.
