Making your Paper Trees:

Start by cutting your brown paper into a bunch of long strips. You do not need to measure their thickness, just as long as you have one the width you would like to use for your trunk. Take the trunk strip and cut/tear it in half. This constructions paper tree is a fun 3d construction paper craft.

This will create your 3D effect! I will go over how we created our cute little apples, but if you would like to see this looping process check out this quick video before moving on! (Plus you get a sneak peek of creating those apples too)

 

Making your construction paper apples:

Cut out as many 1″ circles as you would like apples. Like I said before I use a punch, I bought this whole set because I loved them so much, but you could trace and cut them out. Each apple will need half of a 1/2″ green circle. Finally, you need one thin strip of green paper.This constructions paper tree is a fun 3d construction paper craft.
