Hello my name is Lilly and the other day I made this Christmas tree at school using recycled materials...mum thought it was pretty cool and asked me to share with everyone how it was made...it's really easy and lots of fun!
Okay, so first you need a magazine, make sure its an old one and not one that your mum is reading.
The size of your tree will depend on the thickness and size of your magazine, mum said a small one made from an old Readers Digest (whatever that is) would work really well too.
Open the cover then take the first page and fold it over like this.... make sure you press the crease really well.
Then just fold it over again like this...your first 'tree fold' is nearly finished..
Then just fold the bottom bit up..
Then turn the page and start all over again. You have to do this for every page of the magazine, then at the end get your mum or dad to rip off the outside cover of the magazine and there you have it your very own recycled Christmas tree!
You could spray paint the tree if you like and even add its very own decorations or star but I like it just the way it is - what do you think??
Have fun creating your very own tree and don't forget to leave my mum a message or send a photo I'd love to see what you have created.
Merry Christmas everyone, Lilly
