I have to say I have been slacking on fun crafts for my daughter with all the craziness of getting things ready for the holidays. Thankfully I belong to a really amazing mommy and me group and they put together this really cute craft for the kids this week. It was just such a great craft I had to share it with you guys. If you can’t find paper plates that are already green you can go ahead and simply paint your plates green. If you would like you can change up the decorations however you would like. You could use fun stickers or foam shapes as your ornaments. Star stickers can be tricky to find. So if you can’t get your hand on any you can cut small stars out of paper and put a small piece of double sided tape on the back to create your own stickers.

Paper Plate Christmas Tree Craft Directions
Cut your paper plate into thirds. Take one of the pieces and cut it a bit smaller than the other two. Layer them together with the smallest one on top, staple your plates together. Cut out a rectangle out of the paper and staple it to the bottom of the tree. Let your child add some garland with the puffy paint in a wavy line across each layer. Dab small dots of glue all over the tree. Stick the pom pom on each dot of glue. Let the glue completely dry.
