I chose papers that would complement my red and aqua color scheme. However, any type of good quality wrapping paper or large pieces of printed paper would work for any of these ideas.

My secret to making this tree a reality? I employed several little elves (a.k.a, my mom, mother-in-law, and sister) to join in ornament making post-Thanksgiving dinner. 😉 They were a huge help. Even 3 year old Stella helped make the garland by punching out all the paper circles.
