Create tabletop trees from newspaper and cardboard boxes. To make these, you’ll need discarded cardboard, a utility knife, scissors, hot glue sticks and glue gun. Cut the cardboard boxes down into flat sheets and then roll each sheet into a conical. Next, cut the uneven cardboard along the bottom of the conical and keep both ends of the cardboard fastened together with hot glue. Next, cut newspaper into 4-inch strips and then fray the newspaper with scissors. Wrap each conical with the layers of frayed newspaper and then secure them in place with hot glue.
