Last Minute Gift: Lottery Ticket Tree

Lottery Ticket Tree

 I wrapped all my gifts this weekend with the help of my friends Sara and Meg. We painted, stamped, and ribboned the massive amounts of brown paper I have for some really pretty wrapping paper.

The last person on my list was Dad. Nothing like waiting for the last minute! My Dad insisted he didn’t need or want anything for Christmas. I wasn’t totally stumped, though. He LOVES his scratch off, so I knew they’d be a perfect gift for him. I didn’t want to just stuff the gifts in a bag with some tissue paper when I wrapped everyone else’s so so beautifully. I picked up a foam cone and some sewing pins from Micheal’s and made a ticket tree!

All you need for a lottery ticket tree

This was super easy. Just wrap the tops of the tickets around the cone and pin the corners down. Overlap and flare out all the tickets to add texture until you get to the top of the tree.

I topped the tree off with a bow, and I also pinned on a moose ornament (my Dad’s nickname is Moose). Simple, quick, and cute!

      So glad you like it! The cone was a 12″ cone. For the lotto tickets, I used 16 large tickets ($3 or more tickets). That being said, you’re going to need more tickets if you use $1 tickets because they’re smaller. The nice thing about the cone, though is that the tickets can curve and cover a larger area if you spread them farther apart (and likewise you can stuff LOTS of tickets together to create more branches). Let me know how yours comes out if you make it!😊
