We often throw old paper which has been used or is of no longer use and help to us. You can use the used and no longer used paper for making interesting Christmas tree. You can cut out Christmas trees from old paper or you can also be a little innovative and creative while doing up the Christmas tree. You can also use the paper by folding them and attaching it to tree as per the need. The tree can be left as it is or you can paint it, colour it or embellish it as per your needs and requirement.
