There’s no need to get a big tree at Christmas time. You can make your own out of paper.
Of course, this might not be as impressive as a real tree, but it’s a lot cheaper and a lot easier to acquire. What’s more, you can get your kids in on the fun to make it a seasonal family activity.
When it comes to paper Christmas tree crafts, there are so many to choose from. Here are some to consider making with your family.
Popsicle Stick Trees
Popsicle sticks make a terrific tree outline. Stick them together into a triangular shape with green paper in the middle. Make a paper trunk and decorate with gems and glitter.
Puzzle Piece Christmas Tree
For this one, you will need to flip puzzle pieces on their backs and paint them various shapes of green. Glue them to cardboard or a blank canvas in an abstract tree shape. Add colored tissue paper and pom poms as ornaments.
Jeweled Paper Christmas Tree
Start with a sturdy green piece of paper. Use a clothespin as the trunk and bejewel with various gems and ornaments. These will look cute grouped together to form a Christmas tree forest.
Toilet Paper Roll Christmas Tree
To make this tree you will need about five empty toilet paper rolls. Cut four of them to various sizes and paint them green with colorful flecks as ornaments. Stack them one on top of another with the smallest on top and the largest on the bottom to make a tree-like pyramid. Take the fifth tube and cut it so it’s about an inch thick. Paint it brown and use it as the trunk.
Abstract Christmas Tree
This is a mess free way to make a terrific piece of seasonal art. Take a piece of paper and cover it with lines going every which way. Give it to your child so they can find a triangular shape in the middle to color green. This will be the tree. Have them color the other shapes in a variety of colors to provide an authentic abstract look.
Paper Plate Tree
Start with a paper plate cut in half. Have your child paint it green. Glue the sides together so it forms a cone shape. Add pom poms as ornaments and you have a terrific centerpiece for your dining room table.
Straw Christmas Tree
Colorful straws make a great Christmas tree. Cut them to various sizes and glue them together with the longest on top and the shortest on the bottom. Once glued together, glue the piece to a longer straw. This will serve as backing and as a tree trunk. It will make a terrific tree ornament.
