Making your Painted Paper Christmas Trees:
Check out this quick video to see the project from start to finish in under 2 minutes!
Start by drawing a large tree shape on your green paper. Then cut out wavy lines on the white piece of paper. Punch holes up and down each side of all of your wavy lines.
Next, tape your green sheet of paper down then your white paper flush on top. Grab your kiddo and some paint and let them go at it!
V covered the entire piece of white paper!! Once they are done remove the white sheet.Allow to dry and then cut out your tree! V was very impressed with her painted paper Christmas trees. (Mama was too!) Don’t forget to add the date the back of your painted paper Christmas trees!
