I met up with my new craft helper and fellow mommy fashionista Mo again this week. We put together these cute tissue paper Christmas trees to start our holiday decor with our toddlers in mind. You can’t break it if it is made out of paper and we won’t cry if it rips since it barely costs a dollar to make.
This is a great project to work on with bigger kids that know how to use stick glue. All you need to do it cut out the tissue paper and make the cones beforehand. Also, the pencil can be un-sharpened.
Start with a newspaper and make it into a cone shape. Have a piece of tape ready to hold it together. Cute off the bottom of the cone so that the stands flat. You might have to cut the cone off a little at the bottom to have it stand up straight.
Next, cut up pieces of tissue paper into 1-inch squares.
Place each square onto the back of the pencil. Rub the end into the glue stick and push it lightly onto the cone.
You will scatter the pieces tightly or loosely depending on full you want the tree to look. We spaced them out on the colorful tree and fluffed it up.
Star on Top of Tissue Paper Christmas Trees
Tools and Supplies
If you are feeling ambitious, you can add a star to the top. We cut out two small stars in white felt and two a little larger stars in green felt and glued them together to a lolly pop stick from a baking project I did a few weeks ago with Oreos. We dropped the lolly pop through the top of the cone and glue in place.
