Chevron Tree

I was so inspired by the tissue Christmas trees found at acreativemomma that I had to buy some supplies and make my own......with a  twist  (wink wink, no pun intended)......CHEVRON.

Here's how I made it. 
First I followed the instructions from a creative momma and twisted lots and lots of tissue paper strips (2" wide and doubled up so that they didn't rip as much)

Then I twisted a 12x 12 piece of card stock into a cone and placed it onto a plastic popcorn cup (from the dollar store) and hot glued it in place.

 Drew a chevron pattern onto the cone and added 4 layers of twisted tissue in each colour.

 .......and continued until the cone was covered.


I love the rope look to the tissue and love, love and pattern on the tree.
