What you need:

  • 8 ½” x 11” white cardstock
  • patterned paper/cardboard
  • glue
  • drag

Step by step guide

You can use cardboard or any colored paper you have available, gift wrapping paper will also look nice.

I dug through my scrapbooking stash to find some colorful cardstock for this Christmas and I love the added texture these patterns bring.

Step 1

If you like this style, you can buy them at arts and crafts stores for cheap and often on sale.

Using scissors or a paper cutter, cut the paper into ½-inch wide strips, then cut into various lengths from 2 inches to the longest piece no longer than 8 inches.

Step 2

Cut a simple star shape from yellow paper and a brown stem, glue the stem to the bottom of a white piece of cardboard, you can use regular printer paper but cardboard is much more durable.

Step 5

Give your child a glue stick…

Step 3

…and instruct children how to arrange the strips from the trunk up in order from largest to smallest (or let them be creative, crooked trees are fine too).Step 4

Glue a yellow paper star to the top of the tree and your simple, cute kids Christmas tree is ready to display!
