Multicoloured 3D Christmas Tree

Looking for a fun, creative, and colourful way to make a paper Christmas tree for children at primary school? This 3-D Christmas tree is simple, bright and cheerful and can be customised with different colours and decorative artwork so all children/students can create their own unique festive looking Christmas tree.

Items you need to make a 3D Christmas Tree:

  • Plain or colour card which you can decorate (use card to print off Christmas tree templates)

  • Scissors

  • Colour string/ wool

  • Glue stick

  • Glue gun

  • Decorations/ small pom poms

How to make your 3D Christmas Tree:

  1. Begin by printing out a Christmas tree template 4 sheets of plain card or on 4 sheets of coloured card. Cut out each paper Christmas tree template.

  2. Fold each of the Christmas tree templates in half. Use a glue stick to add glue to one of the folded halves of a Christmas tree. Then attach another folded half onto the glue, aligning the pieces together. Continue gluing and adding the Christmas tree halves until all templates are attached. Then add glue to the two ends and attach them together to finish forming the 3D Christmas tree.

  3. Peel the top of the paper tree apart to open it up. Place some glue at the end of a piece of string (you can choose your length) with the glue gun and place the end of the string into the top of the paper tree. Seal the top of the tree back up with the string coming out of the top of the 3D Christmas tree.

  4. Finish your 3D Christmas tree by adding various decorations such as pom poms around the different sections or leave plain as the colour card also looks great.
