4) Elegant Doily Christmas Trees

Create lacy winter trees with paper doilies, hot glue and a few sturdy twigs or skewers. Cut a wedge out of a round doily and bring the cut edges together to form a cone. The size of your wedge will determine how narrow the cone is. Glue the cone together and slide onto the stick. Glue into place. Add more cones in decreasing sizes to create a layered tree.
