Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree! A forest of Christmas trees is the perfect way to get that festive feeling – and these ones will keep little hands busy too. Make them from plain coloured paper, or from patterned scrapbooking paper for a fancier look – either way, we warn you – they’re a little bit addictive!
What you’ll need
- 1 x sheet scrapbooking paper
- hole punch
- 1 x green popsicle stick
- star punch
- 1 x sheet coloured paper
- Taking the scrapbooking paper by its short edge, fold the paper back and forth in 1/2 cm increments for the length of the paper.
- Punch a hole through each fold of paper at one end so that all the holes line up.
- Double the string over and thread through the holes.
- Loop the string through itself and secure with a knot so that the paper becomes a tree shape.
- Glue the popsicle stick to the back of the fan to become the trunk of the tree. Allow to dry.
- Using the star punch, create a star from the coloured paper and glue to the top of the Christmas tree.
