This is an easy project for you and the kids to make - turn your tree into a forest by filling it with dozens of paper tree ornaments.
Note:  Adult supervision is required when using a glue gun.
What You Need
  • Patterned paper
  • Straight- and decorative-edge scissors
  • Double-sided adhesive tape
  • Green wire
  • Glue gun and hotmelt adhesive
How to Make It
  • Draw 5-, 4-, and 3-1/2-inch circles, and cut each out with straight-edge scissors.
  • Cut a slit to the center on each circle, using straight-edge scissors.
  • Trim around each circle using the decorative-edge scissors. Leaving a small opening in the top, wrap each circle into a cone shape and hot-glue the ends.
  • Cut three 18-inch-long wires.
  • Holding the wires together, wrap a short wire around the wire bundle.
  • To form the tree, thread the cones, one at a time and in graduating sizes, onto the wire bundle, hot-gluing them in place on the inside.
  • Curl the ends of all the wires, trimming their lengths as needed.
