Tissue Paper Tree

We hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday! I wanted to post about this tree prior to Christmas, but we just got too busy! I saw these amazing tissue paper tree's earlier this month on Spunky Junk {go to there tutorial for more details} and I instantly knew I wanted to make at least one tissue paper tree. I actually wanted to make a variety of tree's but like most projects... time got the best of me! Remember, how I hosted my third craft lunch at work the other week? Well this was the project I started working on... little did I realize that I was taking on a gigantic project!

Here was what I started with... a ton of tissue paper squares. At the time I took the picture I wasn't sure which cone I would go with... of course me not realizing how large of an undertaking this was I went with the largest cone I had!

Here is the first row of tissue papers glued!

This was after an hour of folding/hot glueing... 

A close up of my hours worth of work! 

Me concentrating on the hot glueing/placing of the tissue paper. 

After 5 of the longest hours of my life my tree was finally complete! Yes, 5 hours. Most craft blogs won't tell you how tedious the project was! Needless, to say I finished this 2 days before Christmas and did not work on any other cone tree's!

You go girl! Your tree turned out awesome and yes they do take A LOT of time. I ended up folding on the tissue paper pieces first so I had three HUGE mounds, then I just began to cover my tree in glue and then I just started sticking away! Great Job, I love the color. ;)

That is so cute! It is definitely nice to know ahead of time what a large time commitment it is though.
