The other day I saw this lovely 3-d felt ornament that reminded me of long ago, when I did a lot of paper crafting. I remembered specifically some 3-d paper crafts that I learned to make using 2 pieces of paper and a needle and thread. The reminder, plus the fact that my 2 1/2-year-old won't leave our Christmas tree alone, lead me to create this craft. The first part is for adults and older children because it uses scissors and needles or staplers. The second part is for everyone.
Part One: For Adults and Older Children:
2. Make a light fold longways down the center of the trees so that you can see where the center is. Sew or staple up the center line.
3. If you are using cardstock, skip this step. Lift the branches of the tree up to glue the top two sheets together. Flip over and glue the bottom two together. Note: Do not glue all 4 sheets together!
Part Two: For Everyone:
Now that the tree is put together, you can have some fun with it. Use glitter, crayons, stickers, scraps of wrapping paper, etc. to allow children to decorate and personalize their trees.
