Kids and adults can make these cute holiday trees using cut paper and craft sticks.
By: Andrea Mulder-Slater
These paper trees are just what you need when you have a few extra classroom minutes to fill during the holidays.
What You Need:
- A popsicle stick
- A small wooden block, a wine cork, or a hunk of play dough
- Colourful paper
- Small sticky-back gems
- Dried grass or raffia
What You Do:
Glue a popsicle stick to a wooden block or wine cork. Or, place the stick in a hunk of play dough.
Then, cut five small strips of paper – from larger to smaller. Glue the paper strips to the popsicle stick, add some shiny button stickers and a sticker star and your tree is ready for the mantle.
If you are so inclined, you can also glue a little stash of dried grass or raffia to help camouflage the base of the tree. But that’s entirely up to you.
In case you’re wondering, you can find directions on how to make the other paper trees in the photo by clicking here.
