A big “thank you” to Martha Stewart for this one. Not only is this a great way to recycle old magazines, but it is great a for holiday decor or for wedding decor.

You can spray them in festive colors like the gold and silver above, or do colors that coordinate with your wedding. And, because I’m a lover of almost all things Martha Stewart, I had to share with you the steps on how to make them! You can also visit the Martha Stewart site for a video tutorial.
Tools and Materials
Old magazines of any size
Gold, silver, or clear spray paint

Magazine Trees How-To:
1. Open magazine and bend to break spine.
2. Fold individual page from top right corner to inside seam. Fold same page from bottom right edge to gutter.
3. Fold bottom triangle of each additional magazine page up, making the bottom of the tree flat. Then, fold top of all pages down to form tree shape.
