    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.
