Paint Sample Christmas Tree Crafts
I absolutely love these little Christmas Trees! All you need to make them is some paint samples that you can grab for free at any hardware store, some buttons, glue, and a sticker star. I always purchase craft buttons from Oriental Trading. They have a huge selection to choose from and are very reasonably priced. To make your tree, cut a triangle out of your paint sample strip using the template shown in the picture to the right. Next, have your child pick out a few of their favorite buttons. Add some glue to the back of the buttons and have your child place them on the tree. If you have star stickers available, place one on top of your tree.
Felt Christmas Tree Ornaments
This craft is so simple, even the youngest children can do it! Using a piece of felt, cut out a Christmas Tree shape. Wrap a sparkly pipe cleaner around the tree. Next, have your child glue on small pom poms. Using a hole puncher, poke a hole at the top of your tree. Add a piece of yarn as a hanger.
Stained Glass Christmas Tree Window Hanger
These are my favorite Christmas Tree Crafts! They look amazing in the windows, when the sun shines in! To make these Christmas Trees, you will need tissue paper, laminating sheets, green card stock, and yarn. Cut out a tree shape out of a laminating sheet. Have your child place tissue paper squares on the sticky side of the laminating sheet. Once they have covered the entire sheet, place a second sheet on top, sealing the tissue paper in between the laminating sheets. Next, make a tree shaped border out of green card stock. Tape the border around the tree shaped laminating sheet. Using a hole puncher, poke a hole at the top of the tree. String yarn through for the hanger.
Craft Stick Christmas Tree Ornament
I found green and red craft sticks at our local dollar store. Perfect for holiday crafts! Using the green sticks and some buttons, my boys made these adorable Christmas Tree ornaments. Glue three craft sticks into a triangle shape. Next, put a dab of glue on each button and have your little one place them onto the triangle. Once the glue has dried, tie some ribbon at the top to make the hanger. Adorable!
