Kids Christmas Craft Activity
Select colored craft papers. You can use scrap craft papers for this project as well. Trace the template patterns on the selected craft papers using a pencil. Use scissors to cut out the traced patterns. The template includes 1 small strip, 1 star, 1 square, 8 round shapes of 2 different sizes and a semi arch-shaped pattern.
Take the semi arch-shaped pattern and create small accordion folds with it, lengthwise. Try to keep the folds small and even.
Take the small strip cut out and apply glue on any one side of it. Hold the folds together along the straight side of the pattern.
Attach and wrap the folds held together with the glued strip to secure them. Press the strip firmly on both sides to make sure that it is glued nicely with the folds. This end will be the top end of the tree.
Glue the star cut out on the top end of the tree.
Apply small drops of glue on the tree; where you’d like to add the small round cutouts (for the tree decoration).
Now attach the square cut out (the trunk) on the bottom, the back side of the tree.
Allow the glue to dry.
You can add more details, such as craft glitter, confetti to decorate the tree.
Follow our simple directions and you can make your own cute Christmas Tree Craft.
Attach a strip or paper loop to the top to convert it into a DIY Paper Christmas Tree Ornament.
