How to make an easy cardboard paper Christmas tree centerpiece. These lovely glitter Christmas trees are so easy to make.
I love that my parties are joyful and that my guests have a good time. And as good Mexicans, you can not miss the Latin food and music, the decorations, the Christmas aromas, and the piñata.
I like to use cheerful colors to avoid that the nostalgia that gives in those days to some people; I prefer to decorate thinking always that my guests have fun.
I think colors and the environment can help make more joy in those days, as it should be. Creating a party atmosphere contributed to the joy of my guests.

I share the colorful centerpiece with Christmas trees with glitter; and here’s the step-by-step process of how to make them.
CARDBOARD PAPER CHRISTMAS TREE CENTERPIECE
- 2 sheets white cardboard
- Glitter different colors
- Clean silver or gold pipes or pipe cleaners
- Thick diamantine or dried snow
- 1 gold-colored leaf for the stars
- Shiny gems or pebbles (optional)
- Small spotlights
- Dry ice (foam) or 60 cm long wooden base
- Silver ribbon
how TO MAKE THE GLITTER TREES
We start by making three cones or cones, one big and two smaller; mine are 26 centimeters tall and the big 36 centimeters tall. You can use staples and finish with glue so that it stays firmly glued. Trim the leftovers, make sure the cones are well-off at the base.
We cover each of the cones with a different color, placing the frost or diamond on a cardboard, covering the cone with glue and passing over the frost until it is covered. With the cones covered, let’s place the gems, this step is optional.
How to make a 3d paper star
Draw a paper star and we’re going to cut two stars for each little tree.
Cut the stars from the bottom to the center and put one inside each other.
Place the paper stars in the little tree by sticking them with glue or you can stick them to a toothpick and then put it in the hole of the cone.
For the base
If you get a nice base that’s good, if not, we’re going to line the edge of the foam or dry ice with a nice, smooth-colored slat, I used silver.
Then we will cover the base with glue (leaving free the space where the cones will go) and add the thick diamantine or dry snow.
Glitter lights for CARDBOARD PAPER CHRISTMAS TREE CENTERPIECE
Cover the lights with glue, one by one and empty them diamond shades of different colors. (just like we did with the cones).
When all the little foquitos are ready, we tie a pipe cleaner and make some waves, we can help us by tangle them with a pencil.
Finally, place the little Christmas trees at the base, sticking them with glue. Settle the glitter lights bulbs.
I hope you enjoyed this colorful cardboard paper Christmas tree centerpiece!
