Paper Plate Wall Christmas Tree Craft

Paper Plate Wall Christmas Tree Craft

December is here, which means the Christmas season has officially begun! My kids and I are hard at work making bunches of crafts to decorate our home. Because our apartment is so small, I have been focusing on decorations to hang on the walls. One simple craft that my daughter really loves is a Christmas tree made from green paper plates and various decorating materials such as stickers and beads.


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


  1. Form a pyramid with the paper plates. (I used 10 plates to create a Christmas tree with four layers.)
  2. Decorate the paper plates with the decorating materials.
  3. Recreate the pyramid shape on the wall with the decorated plates.
