paper plate Christmas tree garland

my little ones and i had fun making these. we had done something similar in the fall with paper plates and making them look like candy corn, so i knew when Christmas rolled around, we would make Christmas trees.

paper plates cut into quarters
green paint
glitter glue, sequins, construction paper...whatever you want to use to decorate your trees.

we painted our trees first and once they were dry we decorated them.

then i hung them up on an old window in our dining room.


  1. These paper plate Christmas trees are an adorable and creative idea! I'll be repinning this on my Kids' Craft board, and Christmas board! I came over from Pinterest, and my website pin4ever.com lets pinners save a copy of all their pins, likes, and boards. Anyone can get a free backup right now -- I hope you'll check it out!

  2. My preschooler and I made something similar based off of your idea. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I am going to make this with my daycare kids. I love finding new ideas for Christmas. I am adding this to my christmas website. www.everything4christmas.org Thanks!
