Paper Christmas tree

I saw this idea in Somerset Life Magazine, by a woman named Martha Deavers.

I cut varied sized circles from an old book. I glued a wooden knob onto a dowel and glued that to several pieces of cardboard which were also glued together. This is the trunk of the tree. Then I cut x's in the center of each circle, and put them on the dowel, biggest ones on the bottom and smaller as they go up the tree. Because I didnt have any green paint, I mixed some with blue and yellow in a plant spray bottle. I added some glitter to the paint and shook it well, and then sprayed it on the tree. Here it is so far--not yet compleated.

In the magazine, Martha sewed little cloth animal ornaments to put on the top--I just cut a star from paper. I think I will paint it silver, or glue aluminum foil to it.
