Simple handmade Christmas tree card

Christmas is right around the corner and we’re officially at the stage where we make and post our Christmas cards! My son and I wanted to share this little design with you because it’s so simple but looks adorable too. We’ve been making these since he was tiny, I used to help him with the tricky bits but now he’s all grown up he barely even asks for my help with them. It’s amazing how fast he is growing and gaining independence. Sometimes I wish time would slow down a little but I’m so super proud of him! His little Christmas tree card designs really are adorable and we can’t wait to share them with loved ones.

Here’s what we used

  • White paper
  • Red card
  • Coloured markers
  • Decorations (we used sequins and buttons!)
  • Scissors
  • Glue

How to make our super simple Christmas tree cards.

To make our cards we did our design on white paper and then mounted it on to card but drawing straight on card looks fab too! Take a green marker and starting at the centre near the top of your card draw a gradually snaking line downwards, getting wider as you near the bottom.

Cut out a star shape and glue it in place at the top of your tree line.

Add some colourful decorations all along the tree line. Then take a marker and add a little stump at the bottom of the tree.

We finished off by mounting our design onto some red card. Dont they look adorable? So simple too!
