Today I am going to share my ombre holiday trees. I am decorating my home this Christmas in golds, silvers and whites to create a woodland wonderland look and this is one of my projects. These trees are pretty simple to make and you may even use this as a family craft project. I love the touch of ombre, but you can certainly make them any style to match your home. I found the paper mache cones in three different sizes at Michaels. You can also order them on Amazon. I used two round punches, 1.5 inch for the larger tree and 1 inch for the smaller. I also made a tree from a star punch and the final and my favorite tree is made from a simple leaf shape that I cut free style. I think what makes these trees stand out is the curl of the paper, something that I do for most of my paper flowers. For these trees I used metallic paper from paper-papers.com. The colors are Champagne, Gold Leaf and Antique gold. I used a text weight but I think they will work with card stock as well. I have included the simple step-by-step directions for you to follow along. Cheers! ~ Lia
