This adorable tree is made from green polka dot paper and embellished with red gems. It's fun and easy to make.

Approximate Time: 60 minutes



Cut 12 x 1 inch strip of polka dot paper. Cut straight fringe lines all the way along the paper. Curl up the edges by rolling them around your pencil.

Starting at bottom of cone, apply glue at the end of paper strip and overlap it with the opposite end, holding it until dry.

Continue until the cone is completely covered with paper strips, allowing piece to extend slightly beyond bottom.


Use red gem stickers to embellish the tree.

This simple Christmas tree is a great craft for young children to create with very little adult assistance. It was created to be used in Sunday school.
