The Christmas tree is a symbol of Christmas. That is why we chose the Christmas tree motif to make Christmas decorations.
- sturdy paper
- water colours or tempera colours
- paper glue
- white string
- a wooden stick
Prepare the template according to the Pdf.
We will paint different patterns in green colours on the whole surface of the sturdy paper and let it dry. On the reverse side, we will draw the trees according to the prepared templates. We cut the individual shapes carefully.
Depending on the number of trees, prepare strings of approx. 35-60 cm and fold them in half.
Gradually, we start gluing two trees together.
We glue the white side, the reverse one and don’t forget to glue a string in the middle.
Put the tree white side up on the table. Apply glue to the white area, place the string in the middle and cover it with another tree so that the decoration is two-sided.
Let the finished trees dry. If they curl a little after gluing, we weight down them overnight to even them out.
Tie the dried, non-curled trees to a twig.
Finally, tie a string to the twig so you can hang the decoration.
The finished Christmas decoration can be used as a Christmas decoration for your kid’s room, a wall, a window or a door.
