Cut Out The Glittery Card For Our Card Winter Trees Snow Scene
Cut out the following tree shapes from the corresponding glittered cardstock:
- Gold glittered card: 1 large tree, 1 small tree, and 1 star
- Silver glittered card: 1 medium tree
- White glittered card: 1 short, fat tree
- Black glittered card: 1 medium, thin tree
Strengthen The Trees For Our Card Winter Trees Snow Scene
To make the trees sturdier and symmetrical, cut a second tree for each shape by flipping the template over. This will create mirror images of each tree shape.
Glue All The Glittery Card Trees Together
Glue the pairs of trees together, ensuring they align neatly. Only apply glue to part of the trunk. Trim any excess card around the edges for a polished look.
Create Tabs For The Base Of Our Glittery Trees
Fold out the base of the trunk to form two flat tabs on each tree.
Start Thinking About How To Arrange Our Card Winter Trees Snow Scene
Starting with the large gold tree, apply glue to the tabs and place it toward the back of the dome base. Test the placement by putting the dome over the top to ensure the trees won't get knocked or squashed.
Continue To Add Trees To Our Card Winter Trees Snow Scene
Add the trees in the following order:
- Medium silver tree
- Short, fat white tree
- Medium, thin black tree
- Little gold tree
Glue the gold star to the black tree. Double-check the positioning of your trees by temporarily placing the dome over the arrangement.
Add Some Last Pretty Details To Our Woodland Snow Scene
Sprinkle artificial snow around the base of the trees. You can also include festive characters inside the dome at this stage if you like.
Finally, place the glass dome over the top to complete your glittery forest display.
Additional Decorating Tips
You can use alternative materials like old scraps of wrapping paper or fabric swatches by sandwiching a piece of cardstock in between to enhance their strength.
To elevate your winter woodland display, consider adding deer figurines, miniature stars, and delicate fairy lights around the dome.
Enjoy your beautifully crafted winter tree domes that will add a touch of winter wonderland to your home decor.
