Christmas Tree Name Cards DIY

Crepe paper pine trees make the cutest little name cards for your holiday dinner – group them together afterwards and you have the most charming forest as your table decoration! These don’t take long to make at all, and the best part – the base of the tree is made from a mini chocolate peanut butter cup. You may or may not have to “test” the chocolate as you make them – you know, to make sure they’re OK! Just saying.

Materials needed: green crepe paper, bamboo skewers, scissors, red and pink cardstock, white ink pen, Justin’s Mini Peanut Butter Cups.

Step 1: Cut a skewer about 4 1/2 inches, keeping the pointed end to use.
Step 2: Take a 2 foot length of crepe paper streamer and fold in half. Fold in half again, and again one more time.
Step 3: Cut fringe into the length of the strip.
Step 4: Lay the roll of fringed paper flat, and apply dabs of glue along the solid side.
Step 5: Starting halfway up the skewer, with the pointed end at the bottom, begin rolling the fringe UP the skewer. At the top, twist to make a pointed tip.
Step 6: Gently fluff up the crepe paper to create the shape of the tree.
Step 7: Cut out a small (1/2″ x 1 1/2″) paper rectangle, write guest’s name on it.
Step 8: Attach the name tag, with a dab of glue, to top of tree.
Step 9: Insert skewer into Mini Peanut Butter Cups as the base of the tree.

      Hi Suzie,
      I think I got them at Party City. Sometimes the dollar store will have good colors too.
      Thanks! Chiara
