embellished Christmas tree craft for kids

I know, a Christmas tree craft in may! What am I thinking?! Let’s be honest though this little embellished Christmas tree craft is pretty adorable. I came up with the idea whilst we were making our fingerprint apple trees. I had to get them written down as by December I know that I would’ve completely forgotten the idea. These little trees are perfect as a little handmade gift or for decorating your home. I’m definitely going to be popping ours into our Christmas keepsakes box.

Here’s what we used

  • Green and Yellow card
  • Embellishments (we used buttons and pom poms)
  • Cardboard Tube (you can use to rolls but your tree will need to be smaller than ours. We used the inside of a silver roll and just cut it to length)
  • Brown paint
  • Marker
  • Pen
  • Scissors

How to make our embellished Christmas tree craft

Take your piece of card and fold it in half. Draw a curve starting in the bottom right corner going up to just past the halfway line of your fold. Your curve should look like a quarter of a circle.

Cut out your shape and fold it in half at the point trim off any excess card so that your curve is even all the way around.

Open your shape out to reveal four equal sections. Decorate three of your sections with your cute embellishments and leave one of the end sections clear. Put your tree aside to dry.

Whilst your tree is drying, take your cardboard tube and cover it in brown paint to make the trunk.

Once your tree is dry, cover your decorated triangle in glue. Pull the glued triangle around and stick it on the inside of your other end triangle to make a pyramid shaped cone.

Cut out a star, pop some glue on the back and then pinch it on to your tree until it sticks.
