These trees are quick and easy to make, all you need is a magazine with around 80 pages or more, with no spine, just folded and stapled.
Begin by folding the pages to bring the top edge to the centre and crease, then fold the creased edge to the centre. Tuck in the small point of page that is sticky out at the bottom flush with the bottom of the page and move on to the next page. Continue all through the magazine until you have a folded cone shape.
Once the cone is finished dab PVA glue along the outer ridges and roll in glitter. It shows more in the reflection on the table in this photo than on the trees and it looks great in the evening in artificial light.
The little star on the top is made with glitter paper and origami folding. Both the tree and the star can be found as tutorials on you tube. This is something you could make with children, it's inexpensive, simple but effective and when Christmas is over it can be recycled.
