Torn Batting Tree

Categories: Party Decoration, Gifts, Decor, Holiday, Winter

We love the soft look that is created when you use a torn piece of batting to create this wintery holiday tree. It is so so easy to make and you can change the distance between or the direction of the stripes for a different look. Use it in combination with the twisted batting tree and ribbon tree for a serene winter display on your mantel or table centerpiece.

Step One

Cut the batting into 4″ strips. lightly tear off the edges of batting on both sides of the strips.



Step Two

Starting at the top of the cone create a treetop by folding the batting strip onto itself at a diagonal and gluing together making a point.


Step Three

Now wrap the batting strips around the cone on a diagonal making sure you but the torn edges up against each other to creating dimension and gluing periodically to keep in place. Continue wrapping the batting all the way to the bottom of the cone. Trim and glue the last edge to cone to hold.

You can make the strips in different widths to create different looks.
