Give your tables some love this Christmas by making some Snow-Kissed Cardboard Mini Trees decorations. This cardboard Christmas tree uses thin cardboard that you can cut from cereal boxes or similar food boxes. That makes these DIY Christmas decorations fantastically thrifty recycled crafts. Once you check out this tutorial, you will see that one of these DIY tabletop Christmas trees are also easy enough Christmas crafts for kids. Once painted with white, their sparkly snow-covered "branches" are made with glitter. So, when the light hits these pretty mini trees, they will sparkle and shine like freshly-fallen snow.

It's never too early to start making these Snow-Kissed Cardboard christmas Trees. I need to collect enough cardboard so I can make a whole forest! I love projects that use recycled materials, it makes for an economical craft. I was wondering if it would not be quicker to give the cardboard a wash of white paint before it is cut into petals? And what using a punch to punch out all those petals, that might make the project move along more quickly.

I think those are both very plausible time savers. Especially when you're making a whole forest. I also want to make at least 5 of these to brighten up my side table so I may just use your suggestions! Thanks!! - Krista, Editor, AllFreePaperCrafts
