If you missed our Facebook Live, here are the directions for how to make your own Christmas tree ornament out of newspaper.

Taking a single sheet of newspaper, cut it in half.

Then cut the paper diagonally to have two triangles:

Fold the triangle into a cone and tape:

one-cone

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Repeat making cones, varying length so you can stack them:

cones-together

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tape the cones together and cut fringe, bending up some pieces for a fluffier tree. Tape a ribbon loop to the top. Use colored markers to draw lights, or add some glitter!
