Christmas Tree Arts & Crafts Ideas
Cut out Christmas trees from green construction paper. Hole punch
the top of
the tree and insert a pipe cleaner to hang if you wish. Have the children
the tree with pieces of yarn, glitter, and fruit loops. Be sure to
decorate both sides.
Make Green Trees
For each child, draw a line from the outer edge of a large paper
plate to the center.
Have each child cut along the marked line on the paper plate. Have
paint the back of the plate green. When the paint dries, help each
the plate into a cone and secure with tape. Decorate the tree with
stars, coding dots, or glue on crumpled pieces of art tissue
the children to name the colors they use as they decorate the trees.
Gold Macaroni Tree
Cut Christmas trees out of heavy cardboard. I made a triangle
shape with a trunk and a rectangle
base on the bottom. Punch a small hole in the top and lace with a ribbon
or string. Place them on
wax paper for the project. Students glue different shaped macaroni onto
trees in a pattern of their
choice. It takes lots of glue and then time to dry. When dry, spray
paint them with gold paint.
Handprint Christmas Tree
handprints cut out of green paper
or green paint that the children can press their hands onto,
ten red hearts small enough to fit on the hand print.
Glue or place one handprint at the top of the page and with
the fingers pointing down.
This is the top of the tree. Use the rest of the handprints
fanning out to make a
Christmas tree. In the star write I love...then in each heart let the kids pick special
people...mommy, daddy, friends, grandparents, pets, dolls, etc.
Pipe Cleaner Christmas Tree Craft
Green pipe cleaners,
String red beads on a pipe cleaner about one inch apart. When
all the beads are in place bend
the pipe cleaner in the form of a tree as pictured. String a star button
on to the top and bend
the pipe cleaner end down to secure it. Use a short piece of wire to hang
the three. Secure the
wire by bending it around the button back. If you donít want to use
buttons, glue star gems to the top.
Egg Carton Tree
Two egg cartons,
large piece of paper,
misc. craft items - such as fabric scraps, beads, etc.
Cup the egg cartons so you have one row of 6 cups, one row of
5 cups, and so on to 1 cup.
Paint the outside of the egg cup green. When the paint is dry,
glue them on a large sheet
of paper as follows: Glue the 6 cup row on the bottom of the
paper, just above that glue the 5 cup
row, and so on until you have used all the cups. It should look like a
triangle when you are done.
Decorate with misc. craft items.
Christmas Tree Mobile
Green Construction Paper
Misc. Craft Items - such as fabric scraps, beads, etc.
Cut a large Christmas tree shape -triangle- out of green
construction paper. Cut the triangle into
one inch wide strips. Lay down the strips in the order you cut them out,
with the strips laying
about an inch apart. Tape a long piece of yarn onto the back of the
strips. Use a scrap of brown
construction paper to cut out a pot and tape it below the tree; cut off
any excess yarn
hanging below the pot. Decorate the tree as desired.
