We are doing something a little different for this month’s Member Make! Instead of our usual crepe paper flower, we will be showing you how to make this crepe paper tabletop Christmas tree. Though it does take a bit of time to assemble, it is very easy to craft and will look so cute on your table this holiday season.
To prepare for our live workshop on November 18th, check out our supplies list and instructions below.
This crepe paper tabletop Christmas tree is perfect if you don’t have the space for a full tree. Or maybe you have a tree and want to decorate another room in your home. Overall it’s 18″ tall, so you can place it on any table, shelf, or bay windowsill. Another option is to make it as a gift!
When you’re done assembling your tiny tree, you can decorate it with some small ornaments and fairy lights. We can’t wait to see your version of this DIY craft and how you style it in your home, so make sure to share photos on our crafters community page or on Instagram with the hashtag #MemberMake.
Skill level: Intermediate due to the amount of time this will take; otherwise it is fairly easy!

I know it’s December 20th but I finally finished tree today! Started it during the member make – it is in tulip green which doesn’t look too bad.
Congratulations!! I think a mini tree in PINK would be awesome, so I am sure tulip greed in a winner too. 😉
oh merci, cela sera plus facile.
You are welcome!
Bonsoir, je suis en France y a t il une possibilité pour regarder les vidéos en français?
I will send this request to my video editor. 🙂
I’ve got to admit, I haven’t made the tree…yet. But! Thanks Megan for the new tool – that clip is the most BRILLIANT tip!! I’m currently making some Christmas frames and this was a game changer for the pine accents! Thanks again for making this crafting journey so awesome.
You are so welcome! We love evolving and bringing you along for the ride. 😉
Such a lovely project and perfect timing as we won‘t be at home and have our own tree this year.
This is going to be my tree too! Perfect size. 😉
Thank you Lia , Megan and crew for a wonderful member make .
You are so welcome!
Thanks for this clarification. Looking forward to making this project.
What time does the Member Make start?
We always start at 11am Pacific time
I have my supplies ready and am excited for this member make! My question is about membership though. I am currently a monthly member and I understand that I have access to the monthly collection and 5 additional downloads each month. At the beginning of the month when the collection changes, do I lose access to the previous collection?
Hi Lura! So glad you’re excited for our Member Make! When the collection changes, you can still access the previous collection but it would take away one of your 5 additional downloads if you were to download a project that you haven’t previously downloaded. We recommend downloading all of the projects you want to make from the current collection before the month is over and saving them to your computer in their own folder so you can access them anytime. We also recommend saving your 5 additional projects each month in that folder. You can also see the past 30 projects you have downloaded here in your craft room: https://liagriffith.com/craft-room/downloaded/. Please feel free to email us if you have further questions or need more support!
This does not answer my question. Let me reword my question. If I hide the outside box is the inside box supposed to resized to 11″ x 12″?
No the inner box is not to be resized to 11×12. The outer box is the box that is to match the size stated so in this projects case it is 11″ x 12″. The box should already be the correct size, however we do this just in case there is a problem with design space and the sizing changes during upload. If the outer box does not match the size listed you would select ALL of the elements and change the sizing to match what is writed in the top left corner.
But which box? The one immediately around the template itself or the outer box that is to be hidden?
Hi Laura, You will want to hide the outermost box that is grouped together with the Lia Griffith cut settings and grain lines!
On the SVG template there is a note that states we need to ‘Resize box with artwork to 11″ to 12″. Would this be the inside box after we hide the box with the text? The outside box is 11″ x 12″, and the inside box is 10″ W x 9.511″ H.
That means the lines that create the box should match the number. Once you size it, you can hide the line.
Okie dokie, I just received the supplies for this EXCITING Event. I’ll start the cuts today and have it all laid out for the Members Make.
I am so excited to have Meagan teach us how to make this tree on Friday!!
Would it work to use heavy crepe for this project?
You can use heavy crepe, but you will want to stretch it out before cutting!
I’m so excited for this! Didn’t care about Halloween, was too excited for this! Will the evergreen in the Enchanted Garden pack be enough for this project?
So glad you’re excited! The evergreen in the Enchanted Garden pack won’t be enough. You’ll need two full sleeves, so we recommend the single pack!
