Here is an easy fun Chrismas craft tutorial, Pretty Paper Christmas Trees.
What you will need: double-sided paper of your choice. You want the paper double-sided because when you loop the paper you will be able to see inside the loop. You will need straight pins and styrafoam cones. Styrafoam cones can be spendy, I bought the 7" cone from The Dollar Tree and the 9" cone from Hancocks Fabric on sale, just shop around or use coupons.
9” Paper Christmas Tree
You will need to cut strips of paper from coordinating paper, I used a different pattern for each layer, but you can repeat a pattern if you wish. Then you will loop the strip and use two straight pins to attach paper to cone. Pin at the corners. The next layer up should be placed between the two strips in the layer below to hide the pins. You will use about 194 pins.
*You may need to trim the width a little on some strips to fit around better.
1st Four Layers (Starting with the bottom layers):
12 strips, 11 strips, 10 strips, 9 strips of 1” wide x 3” long
5th and 6th Layer:
9 strips, 8 strips of 7/8” wide x 3” long

Make a cone for the top by cutting out a half circle and gluing it to the top. If you want, embellish along the edge of cone.
