You can make different ones with a picture of your favorite things to hang all over the Christmas tree. It could be a picture of your favorite dog, toy, food, friend, mom, dad, etc.
This Christmas tree is very easy and simple to create. All you need are items that are probably already lying around the house. The holiday stickers you see on the sample Christmas tree are the ones we received in the mail from different nonprofit organizations. It’s an environmentally friendly way of using the stickers instead of letting it go to waste.
- 1 sheet green construction paper
- scraps of different paper (scrapbooking paper works great too)
- Take the green piece of construction paper and twist it into a cone shape, tape it to hold it in place, and fold the bottom edges in so that it will stand up right.
- Once you have the base up, just use your imagination and decorate away!
1 cotton ball
2 googley eyes (can be substituted with paper cut outs or draw it directly on the paper)
Orange and red construction paper
Get 1 pinecone and glue a fluffy craft ball to it.
glue googley eyes to it.
cut an orange triangle out of construction paperÂ and a red “coma” out of construction paper.
glue the triangle/beak under the google eyes and then glue the gobble/coma over it!
wrap pipe cleaners around the end of the pinecone for feathers!!!
Crayons or makers
Fold a sheet of construction paper in half.
Using a pencil, trace the outline of your hand on one half of the paper. Be sure to position your wrist along the fold while tracing.
With the help of a grown-up, cut along the outline of your hand. Unfold the paper to show your bat with 2 wings.
Using crayons or markers, draw a face on your bat and decorate the batâ€™s wings.
Glue a popsicle stick to the middle of the bat and flap the wings!
