Tissue Paper Christmas Tree Craft

Tissue Paper Christmas Tree Craft

Our last 2 crafty posts have been related to Christmas Trees. They say things come in threes and this is not an exception. Today we have another super easy Tissue Paper Christmas Tree craft that will suit the youngest of children.

There really is no right or wrong way to decorate these trees. Children can freely add whichever materials they like.

Before I share this craft with you there are a couple of crafts I want to make sure you have seen:

- Popsicle Christmas Tree Craft
Christmas Tree Leaves
Clothes Pin Snowflakes
Snowman Spools

You will need:
Christmas Tree Templates
PVA Glue
Glue Spreader
Craft Supplies such as pipe cleaners, glitter gems

Tissue Paper Christmas Tree Craft

Cut out a tree template on a piece of thick cardboard. With Christmas gifts and accessories no doubt landing in the post left right and centre - there is plenty of cardboard on hand to whip up lots of trees to decorate. I used a piece of paper folded in half, then cut them out to create a template to draw around on the cardboard. Have a go doing them freehand too. I just wanted to make sure they were symmetrical.

If your children are able to use scissors offer them the opportunity to cut their own trees out if they want to. When doing any activity like this I will often create some templates but allow children not only the freedom to cut out their own but to make something completely different if they want to.

Cut out strips of Tissue paper.

Cover the cardboard in PVA glue and spread around evenly using a glue spreader. Begin to apply the tissue paper, using the spreader if needed to make sure the tissue is stuck down and coated with PVA.

I put two layers of tissue on the tree to make sure the green stood out when it dried.

Start to add your crafty bits to the tree straight away as there will no doubt be enough glue to stick them all on in one go.

Children can add as much or as little as they like.

Why not look at adding a lopp of ribbon or string on the back to hang up? Alternatively you could use them as card fronts or pop a secure magnet on the back so they can be stuck to the fridge/magnetic surfaces.

Lets take a look at the party in action:

If you are choosing to do this craft with younger children or children so are still putting objects in their mouths do carefully consider the craft materials you are using to make sure the children are safe when they are creating.

If you are unsure of which materials to use - why not use some edible paints to decorate your trees instead?
