While you are at it be sure to make them all the colors of Old Glory.
And if you make a few more you'll have enough for a celebration style centerpiece.
Twirl some ribbon around the bases to add some contrast......
Now all you ned is some summertime food. I am thinking about barbecue chicken, corn on the cob, fruit salad, potato salad. Yum. Lets party.
But if you are planning a picnic, you'll need a creative solution for weighting these trees down. A good gust of wind and they'll be swimming in the lake. Possibly placing them over a clear drinking glass and tape them to it would work.
And now stretch your imagination a little bit. Picture these trees cut from silver and black paper for New Year's Eve, or gold for a Oscar party. Even cut them out in neon colors for a pre-teen "You're a Star" birthday bash. It is a very adaptable celebration idea. If you use it, send pics!
