Paper Plate Christmas Tree Craft

Paper Plate Christmas Tree Craft

I absolutely love decorating my house for the holidays with homemade crafts that I created with my kids. Because our apartment is so small, my daughter and I have been focusing on making Christmas crafts to hang on the walls. One of our recent crafts was a forest of Christmas trees made from paper plates.

Materials

  • Green paper plates
  • Decorating materials such as stickers, beads, and jewels
  • Scissors
  • Glue

Instructions

  1. Cut the green paper plates into thirds.
  2. Glue the paper plate thirds together to form a Christmas tree shape.
  3. Allow the glue to dry thoroughly.
  4. Decorate the paper plate Christmas trees with the decorating materials.
  5. Display the paper plate Christmas trees.
