Christmas Tree Wall Decoration by Khali from Little. Lovely.
Christmas is the favourite holiday in our house. Some of my fondest childhood memories are of creating Christmas decorations that I’ll now be making with my own children. Here’s one of my favourites – a paper plate Christmas tree.
*10 x paper plates
*20 x green square art paper
*Double sided tape
*3 x patterned Christmas cards
*White ribbon (optional)
Note: Your green square paper should be the diameter of the inside of your paper plates.
Concertina fold each piece of green square paper, then fold in half.
Staple or tape the inside edges of your folded paper together as shown to create a half circle. Repeat.
Take two half circles and staple or tape together to make a circle. Repeat.
Attach your circle to the centre of a paper plate using double sided tape. Place Blu Tac on the back of the plates so they can be secured to your wall. Repeat for remaining plates.
To make wreath decorations for your tree, cut a circle from the back and the pattern from the front of each Christmas card, as shown.
Secure the patterns to the circles with Blu Tac or double sided tape. Now attach the Christmas wreaths to your tree or to a piece of ribbon to hang above your tree.
Step seven: Assemble plates on your wall in the shape of a Christmas tree and decorate with wreaths.
