Paper Plate Christmas Tree Craft Step by Step
First, prepare a paper plate, which will become the basis for the future Christmas tree. We should paint it red. We use the appropriate gouache for this.
We wait for the plate to dry completely, after which we proceed to the next stage of work. On the back of the plate, mark out a triangle using a ruler and a simple pencil for this.
Cut out a triangle with a utility knife. This is how we get the basis for the future Christmas tree.
Next we need a hole punch. With it, we make holes on the sides of the resulting triangle.
We cut a long thread from green yarn and fold it in half. We fix the tip of this thread on the back of a paper plate. This can be done with glue or tape. Then we begin to thread the green thread into the holes as follows.
So gradually we must fill the entire triangle. The main part of the Christmas tree is ready.
We cut out a small rectangle from brown cardboard and glue it at the bottom of the craft, this will be the trunk of the Christmas tree.
And on top we add a star cut out of yellow cardboard. This is how a paper plate Christmas tree craft.
