Shimmer Tree


This year, skip out on a fresh evergreen tree and opt for this sparkly Shimmer Tree from ILovetoCreate. All you need for this paper tree is some poster board, newspaper and shipping paper, glue, and glitter. This DIY Christmas craft is so easy to make that anyone can craft one. This tree fits in perfectly with rustic decor and will look great as a small tabletop tree in a smaller room. Make multiple trees to go in every room!
