Christmas craft for kids: a printable paper tree to decorate

I needed a small Christmas tree to add to my Christmas decoration, so I did it last sunday. And as it was really easy and quick to do, I did a second one, just a bit different ! 🙂

These trees are made of 4 paper cones that have to be shorter and larger as they go the the top.

I drawed these paper cones and you can print them here if you like my craft. 🙂

Then you’ll have to cut off the four pieces of the tree.

Just glue the edge of each peace of paper and turn it over this edge to create a sharp cone. (It’s the difficult part of this craft where kids may need your help !)

You can also use wave craft scissors to cut the paper templates. This way, you’ll get the sort of cones my mother did while I was doing my first tree. 🙂

We decided to use sugar stars (for cakes !) to decorate this tree.

And I love the final result ! 🙂
