Step by Step Tutorial
Begin painting your paper plate with blue paint.
Grab your tree stencil and begin cutting it out with your scissors.
Place the stencil cutout of the tree on the blue paper plate and trace it in the center using a pencil.
Paint the inside of the tree with your dark green paint.
Clean your brush and dip it into the brown paint, creating the tree’s trunk and the soil at the bottom of the plate.
Poke holes around the edges of the Christmas tree, where you’ll place your ornaments.
Pop small holes in the plate on the edges of the tree and the center, spacing the small dots out.
Grab your green yarn and begin placing it through the holes.
Continue to pull the yarn through the holes.
Continue pulling the green yarn through the holes until you reach the bottom of the tree.
Remove your thin needle from the yarn and cut off any excess.
Grab your colorful pompoms and paste them in different spots on the tree using your glue stick.
