DIY Fringe Tree
Who said you need an 8-foot Douglas fir to make your home feel festive? While we love the real thing, this DIY fringe tree is a fabulous way to use your excess gift wrap and tissue paper and wow your holiday guests.

Fold a few sheets of tissue paper in half and cut the paper about 8 inches from the folded edge. Set the fringe cutter to 6 1/2 inches and follow the instructions on the packaging to create 1/2-inch-wide fringe along the folded edges of the paper.
Using washi or painters' tape, make a triangular tree shape on the wall. Ours was 5 foot 6 inches tall, with a 5-foot base.
Working from the bottom, tape rows of fringe to the wall. Make sure you hide the tape!
