Coffee Filter Tree
Quick and easy to make, create this tree by layering a bunch of coffee filters on top of a Styrofoam tree form -- you'll have to cut the centers out once you get to the base. Because the filters have a natural ruffle to them, all you need to do is add a star at the top of your tree and glue on some festive buttons or sequins as ornaments.
