Holiday Tree

Looking for a new way to give your loved ones scratch-off tickets for the holidays? Below are photos and simple instructions for how to make your own Maryland Lottery holiday scratch-off tree. It’s fun, crafty and easy to do!


  • A stapler
  • Scotch tape
  • Poster board
  • Scratch-offs
  • Scissors
  • Plastic star or other tree topper


Step 1

Step 1: Take the poster board and roll it into a cone. Once you have your desired size cone, tape the edge to secure it.

Step 2

Step 2: Cut the base of the cone so it is even.

Step 3

Step 3: Take a scratch off ticket and roll two corners together before stapling them as shown. Once you have created several “leaves” staple the edges together to create a ring. Measure the ring around the cone base. Once the ring is large enough, slide it down the cone before securing the ring with tape at the bottom of the cone. Repeat this step until the “leaves” cover the entire cone.

Step 4

Step 4: Once you have reached the top of the tree with the “leaves,” tape your selected tree topper to the top of the tree.

Step 5

Step 5: Enjoy your holiday scratch-off tree!
