How to Make Paper Christmas Tree Step by Step
- Take a green square sheet of paper. The preferred size is around 15cm.
- Next, fold it into a cone and stick the ends of the cone and keep aside.
- After this, choose a lighter shade of green and cut rectangular strips of these.
- The length of the strips should be the same as that of the base of the cone and accordingly reduce the length as the size tapers till the top.
- Make around 5-6 strips ready a per the circumference of the cone from base to top.
- Now fold these strips into half and cut tassels all over the strip leaving a small part on the top to stick it to the cone
- Follow this step with every strip.
- Curl the tassels outwards to give a layered pine tree appearance to the tree.
- Next, start with the bigger strip and stick the tasselled strip at the base, followed by smaller strips till the top one by one.
- Next, take a yellow sheet of paper and cut a five-pointed star and stick it on the top of the tree.
- Now add colourful small cut circles or polka dots on the tasselled layers to give the feel of a decorated Christmas tree.
- Finally, take a brown sheet of paper and roll it to form a cylinder. Stick this cylinder inside the cone to form the bark of the Christmas tree.
- That’s it, kids! Your beautiful paper Christmas tree is now ready!
