These paper Christmas trees are fun and simple to make for children and adults of all ages. You just need construction paper and glue. Let’s Make DIY Paper Christmas Trees by following these simple instructions.
I’m a huge fan of keeping things simple, which is why I love this Christmas tree craft idea.
DIY Paper Christmas Tree
You need a little more paper, glue, and a few pieces of glitter to take out something that only takes a few minutes of your time. However, it took hours to plan and build. And you’re the only one who’ll know the truth because I promise I won’t say anything.
What You Need
- Paper (we used construction paper)
- Stuff (pom-poms, sequins, sticky-back gems)
Instructions (step by step)
Put a piece of paper on the table.
Fold the paper for a square.
Cut paper and save a little extra.
Fold the square piece of paperback and start cutting – from an open end – toward the folded edge. Don’t cut all the way through! Instead, leave a space of several centimeters at the folded edge.
Do not worry if the bands are of equal width because this is not really important.
Unfold the paper – the longer at the bottom, the shorter at the top.
Working from bottom to top, add glue to the ends of the strips and fold them in the middle. Like so…
Continue till both sides are complete.
Go ahead and make another little tree out of your scrap paper. Remember to fold the paper in a square and cut the excess before cutting, folding, and pasting.
Fold and glue the lower ends up and stick a square piece of brown paper to the back like a tree trunk. Then, dazzle your creations using whatever you have on hand.
Show off your cool crafts on a window or wall, or use them on presents as an alternative to bows.
