Oh Christmas Tree! Epiphany Crafts Inspired by Pinterest Week

 Over at Epiphany Crafts were are having an "Inspired by Pinterest" week.  Today my project is featured.  I made this fun tree from ..... NEWSPAPER!  Yep that's right, I cut up the Sunday paper and voila... a Christmas tree is born!
 I've seen so many of these trees on Pinterest... some made with squares that were cut with pinking sheers, some were made with circles instead of squares, some made with book paper and some made with regular scrapbook papers.  There are endless possibilities.  What I didn't see was a decorated tree and especially not one with this blinged out star using an Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio Round 25 Rhinestone charm.
 I added a bit of glitter all over the tree.  It really shimmers in the evening light.  I wish you could see it.
These trees are super simple to make.  To see instructions, go to the Epiphany Crafts blog and check out my featured project.

This is of the Pins that inspired me! Looks like the used book paper and pinked the edges.  Love the flower pot base!
