These super easy trees require no exact measuring. Just cut strips of fabric based on the size cone you are using. I used scrap fabric I already had and the cone came from the dollar store!

You want the strip to be narrow enough to stack as you move up the tree and still have definition in each row.

To make the pleats, simply add a dab of hot glue to the cone, press the fabric down, then gather and glue each layer.
