Nesting Scallops Christmas Tree

How adorable is this Nesting Scallops Christmas Tree? This is one of those easy to make Christmas decorations that we'd make a bunch of and scatter throughout the house. You can't beat easy, inexpensive Christmas decorations like this! Find out how they're made with this quick tutorial from Lifestyle Crafts.

Nesting Scallops Christmas Tree


  • Piece of cardboard (big enough to be the base of the tree)
  • Kebab skewer
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Scrapbook papers
  • Lifestyle Crafts Nesting Scallops
  • Lifestyle Crafts' Basic Cupcake Liner stars or Lifestyle Crafts Nesting Star die
  • Ink and ink pad (optional)


1. Cut a cardboard base slightly smaller than your largest scallop.

2. Poke a kebab skewer through the center of the base, and secure with glue.

3. Cut 3 of each size of scallop in coordinating scrapbook paper (use a heavier weight paper).

4. Put a small hole in the center of each scallop.

5. Put a dab of glue on the hole before you load them onto your skewer from largest to smallest one at a time. Leave a small space between each one.

6. Once you reach the top, use stars from Lifestyle Crafts' Basic Cupcake Liner collection glued back to back to cover the tip of the skewer. You could also use a Lifestyle Crafts Nesting Star die or Star die.

7. To make larger or smaller trees, just cut more or less scallops. You can also ink the edges of your scallops.

8. You're done!
