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)
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.
Finish off by balancing your Christmas tree on your cardboard tube! Don’t they just look so fun and festive, i love how each one is unique!
If you've followed the blog at all you will know that my son is mad about all things under the sea. He loves learning about the ocean environment and its inhabitants though his books and we read some of national geographic kids ultimate oceanpedia almost every single day. He loves watching documentaries together too and more often than not hes the one teaching me something new! It was actually him who gave me the idea for this cute paper plate jellyfish
Today I'm back again with another pipe cleaner craft! We had so much fun making these yesterday and came up with some really fun little ideas. I think though that these pipe cleaner snail magnets are my favourite of the day. They're just so adorable and once you get the hang of them they're really easy to make too. We have a whole garden full of them on our fridge right now!
How sweet are these little pipe cleaner apple magnets? It took us a couple of tries to perfect them but now weve got them figured and wanted to share them with you all! In fact, we've got so good at making them that it only takes us a few minutes on each. My son recently Made some sweet apple and worm cards for his teachers as due to current situation he wont be going back to school this year and he wanted to make extra to gift them too. Such a sweet little idea!
