Looped Paper Christmas Tree
We love creating 3D paper crafts for our readers. This 3D looped paper Christmas tree is a fun new twist that still packs the wow factor when it’s done!
Last year we had our 3D paper Christmas tree take off online and go viral! For those that created the tree, we wanted to bring you something new!
Supplies for a construction paper Christmas tree
- Green Construction Paper. Cut into .75″ strips the long length of the paper.
- Yellow Construction Paper. Just a scrap piece will do.
- White Cardstock
- Paper Cutter. Or you could use scissors.
- Glue Stick.
- White Glue.
- Decorations. I used red and green sequins. You could also use punches of paper or even glitter… if you dare.
How to make a 3D Christmas Tree Craft
To prep for your little ones take some time to cut out the strips. If they are old enough they can help with this step.
Using your glue stick add a dab to the end of 4 of your strips.
Pull up the opposite end and then stick them together creating teardrops.
Add a couple of dots of white glue.
Attach your decorations.
Now place all 4 loops decorations down onto your piece of cardstock. You will want the tops close together, and allow the bottoms to fan apart a bit. Then attach the tops using your glue stick.
Repeat for the second layer using only 3 strips of paper.
Then 2 strips. Then 1 strip at the top.
You should have a few more paper strips left. Cut these in half and create 3 half loops to fill in the spaces at the bottom.
The final touch, add on a star!
