Follow Step by Step Instructions
Start by painting the paper plate green. Let the paint dry.
Fold the paper plate in half, make sure the foldis visible.
Cut along the fold to get two paper plate halves.
Fold into a cone, unfold and apply glue on one side, fold into cone shape again.
Allow the glue so e ti e to dry. We usually use a clothespin to hold things together as the glue dries.
Time for decorating! Draw a star on yellow paper.
Cut out the star.
Stick it on top of the paper pkate Christmas tree.
Add other decorations… Cut strips of paper, add gemstones, ribbon… Whatever you like!
Glu decorations on the tree.
Paper really works out well.
You can even use your fingers for decorating.
