Younger kids can make this one with cutting the doily, while older kids who are more skilled with folding can make it out of one doily, without cutting, which will give this craft a bit more volume and texture.

How to Make a Doily Christmas Tree Craft

What you need

  • a green or white doily
  • brown paper
  • construction paper for background (we used black)
  • decorations – yellow or glittery star, buttons, pom poms, scrap ribbon, paper….
  • glue
  • scissors

Step by Step Tutorial

Cut a rectangle (tree trunk) out of brown paper and stick it on the base paper.

Take a doily and fold it into a “tree” shape (see bellow).

This might be a bit hard for younger kids, so if working with kindergarteners you can have them just cut the triangle shape out of the doily.

Apply glue on the doily…

…and stick it on the paper base.

Time to decorate your Christmas tree craft.

Add a star and a couple of baubles (either made with buttons, ribbons, scrap paper or any other material.)

Happy crafting.
