Tea Bag Christmas Tree Craft supplies

Directions for Tea Bag Christmas Tree Craft:
Remove plastic from cone form.
Start at the bottom of your tree with a layer of one color tea bags, so that the bottom of the bag just rests on the surface. Run a bead of hot glue across the top of the bag on the back, position and hold into place until glue is cool.

Repeat all the way around the first layer, overlapping each bag over the last enough to cover your form well.

You can make your tree all green with one or more green colored tea bags or alternate with red like we did here. Start your next row so that the bottom third of your tea bag covers the first row. Continue to the top.

For the star I simply cut a star out of yellow craft foam, hot glued it to a toothpick and pressed it down into the top.
