We show you how to make your own 3D Christmas Tree out of paper. A fun Christmas craft that you can enjoy doing at home over the Festive period!

With thanks to Dionne, from Luton, who sent in this great 3D Christmas Tree idea. Let’s take a look at it…

What did you do?

We started with green paper cut into strips, cardboard cone, glittery card, sequins, pva glue.

The first step was to glue 1cm high at the bottom of the cone, then add the top half of the green strips all along the bottom.

You then fold up the bottom of the strip and stick so there is a loop Continue this all the way up, ensuring there is an overlap on each layer so it gives a feathered look and also hides all of the cardboard cone.

We then cut out a star shape from the glittery card to stick at the top, we added another layer of strips to secure the star in place.

We then put dots of glue in random spots to then stick the sequins to look like decorations.

Fun and easy to do especially for my 5 year old.
