17 Christmas Tree Crafts For Kids

| December 5, 2019 | 16 Comments

There’s something about Christmas tree crafts that really get you into the holiday spirit. I’m happy to provide you with the following 17 fun crafts, appropriate for kids of all ages.

If your kids are on the young side, you’ll want to help them with some of the projects. But, that means you get to have fun too! Keep reading, for a brief description of a few of the crafts on this list.

Yarn-Wrapped Christmas Tree Ornaments

These are really cute ornaments that don’t require any special skills. Cut cardboard into Christmas tree shapes. Haphazardly wrap with the yarn and decorate with colourful pom-poms of various sizes. Glue a loop of yarn on the back of each ornament and they’re ready to hang.

Ribbon Christmas Trees

I’ve seen these adorable little ribbon Christmas trees on various blogs. I love them! This project is a great way to use up ribbon scraps, don’t you think? These particular instructions call for wood sticks that come with square blocks to insert them into. However, I’ve also seen them made with small tree branches for more realistic look.

Simply cut ribbon into small pieces. Tie onto dowels or sticks and then trim the ribbon into a Christmas tree shape. Use them to decorate packages or even your holiday tree.

Terra-Cotta Christmas Trees Craft

For this project you need three terra-cotta pots, suitable for stacking one on top of the other. Paint the pots with acrylic paint. More than one coat is probably necessary. Attach small decorations to the tree with a hot glue gun and glue a wooden star on top. Use these as small table centerpieces or even to decorate a fireplace mantel.

Puzzle Piece Christmas Trees Craft

This is a really cute way to recycle puzzles with missing pieces. Paint the back of several pieces green and a few pieces red, black and white. Once the paint is dry, arrange the green pieces to resemble the tree. Attach a couple of black pieces for the trunk. Decorate with the red and white pieces. Easy-peasy!
