Paper Plate Christmas Tree Craft

This can easily be a project for the whole family to do together, it’s quick, easy and frugal. One paper plate yields 2 trees and you can easily replace pom poms and yarn with other scrap materials you already have at your home. So who will make the nicest looking tree?

It also makes for a good class craft for kindergarten and preschool, give the students as many materials as possible for them to create their unique tree.

What you need:

  • paper plates
  • green paint
  • brushes (we love sponge brushes when it comes to coloring larger surfaces)
  • regular or glitter pom poms
  • yarn
  • white school glue
  • scissors


Paint the paper plate green. Let the paint dry before you continue.


Once the paint has dried, cut the paper plate in half.


Make a cone. You can either use glue or if older kids are making their paper plate Christmas tree craft they can also use a stapler.


Decorate your Christmas tree with yarn and pom poms. White school glue works like a charm here. We love how the glitter pom pom shines on the top of the tree.
