As prescribed by Paulina Constancia
Today I will show you how you can make a lovely flowering tree using a paper towel roll, a doily, some cardboard and stickers.
Step 1 – Cut the paper towel roll to the height that you need. This all depends on the size of your doily.
Step 2 – Adhere doily to cardboard using the white craft glue; cut cardboard following contours of doily.
*Note: It is important to put something inside the roll to give it a little weight; otherwise, it’s too light to stand on its own. It could easily be blown away by the wind. So, just before you glue on the end cover, you can put in a little bag of sand or perhaps some Mung beans to give it a little jiggle.
Here’s a lovely video to use as an intro to the tree painting activity to encourage tree planting.

Check out my sample…
– I used Cherry Blossom stickers (aka Sakura- got them from Art Friend Singapore).
– For the paints I used: acrylic paint:3 shades of green
dimensional paint:glitter gold, fuchsia
– I wrapped the trunk with some wood-like self-adhesive drawer liner. Since my Sakura stickers have a bit of gold, I decided to spread the gold and glitter from the flowers down to the trunk.
Have fun painting and embellishing your personal tree!
