10 Craft Ideas To Do With Christmas Tree Coloring Pages
Christmas trees are a top favorite among children who enjoy coloring.
Here are 10 inexpensive, fun, and creative craft ideas you can do when those finished Christmas tree pages start piling up.
1. Christmas Tree Spiral
For a beautiful craft to hang in a doorway, on a tree, or from a window, cut the colored Christmas tree from the page and create a spiral.
Use a template for this or simply start at the bottom and cut in an upward, circular motion.
Red and green pipe cleaners can be threaded up through the spiral and stapled at strategic points.
The pipe cleaners can then be braided together at the top and made into a hook to hang this cute Christmas ornament wherever you choose.
2. Make a Tabletop Centerpiece
From blue construction paper, make a generous size cutout in the shape of a half circle. Decorate it with gold star stickers for the night sky.
Next, make a fan from white construction paper, which can then be unfolded on its side and the straight ends glued to the bottom of the background to create a “stage.”
Once the Christmas tree is colored and cut out, its trunk should be glued inside one of the folds of the fan.
Other cutouts can then be added, such as Santa or Frosty the Snowman, for a great holiday centerpiece!
3. Christmas Tree Pencil
For this super fun craft, all that’s needed are pencils and the finished Christmas tree page.
The tree should be cut out and embellished however the child chooses, whether fancy or plain.
Next, from top to bottom, it should be folded into an accordion shape, and a strong hole punch should be used to punch through all the layers.
A red or green pencil can then be threaded through the holes, and the accordion stretched back out for a fabulous, ornate pencil that kids will love to use.
4. A Delicious Edible Ornament
Once the children have colored their Christmas trees, they should be laminated to thick cardboard and carefully cut out.
Using nine pieces of hard candy, such as peppermints, the kids should glue them to the Christmas tree, starting with a single candy just under the star, and four at the base, above the “trunk.”
A hole can be punched at the top, through which a piece of yarn can be threaded to hang this yummy treat on a tree.
5. Fancy Christmas Fun
Once the Christmas trees are colored and cut out, give the children sheets of construction paper from which to make ornaments and a star to glue to the tree.
The tree should then be glued to the poster board and cut out.
Next, cut the bottom 3 inches from an empty paper towel roller and cut a slit on either side in which to anchor the base of the tree. This is the tree’s “trunk.”
Use white crêpe paper to bunch up around the tree’s base, and you have a fancy Christmas ornament to sit anywhere.
6. Design a Homemade Christmas Card
Nothing is better than a homemade card during the holidays, and children can easily make one from their colored Christmas trees.
A piece of red construction paper is perfect for this craft. The page should be folded in half, and the colored Christmas tree should be cut out and glued to the right side.
On the left side, the child can write a personal greeting.
The front can be decorated with glitter, stickers, or handmade designs, and “Merry Christmas” can be written with green, silver, or gold puffy paint.
7. A Holiday Fan
This adorable craft can be made in no time, and it’s not difficult. Once the youngsters have colored their trees, the pages should be folded into an accordion shape.
The fanned edge should be on the bottom and the “V” at the top.
A gold star can be cut from yellow construction paper and placed at the point of the V, and a large craft stick can be glued to the back of the fan’s handle.
Tiny craft pom-poms can be used for ornaments, and you have a beautiful holiday fan.
8. Christmas Tree Cones
When the coloring pages are finished, they should be rolled into cone shapes and glued or stapled together.
By trimming the pages, the youngsters can make trees of varying heights. Once they are in shape, they can be embellished to look like real Christmas trees.
Embroidery thread, felt, and other items can be used as garlands.
Pom-poms can be added as ornaments, and a craft bow or star can adorn the top!
9. A Classroom Christmas Tree Chain
For this fun craft, the children should color several pages, cutting the Christmas tree out of one, and using the extras to make a long paper chain.
Next, the Christmas tree cutouts should be sealed with glassine or contact paper and a hole punched in their tops.
Yarn or string can then be put through the holes, and each child can tie his or her Christmas tree to the paper chain for a terrific holiday ornament.
10. Christmas Tree Hat
With newspaper or any other suitable material, follow the basic template for a paper hat.
Next, have the kids color and cut out a Christmas tree.
This should be glued to the paper hat, keeping in mind that the child should wear it sideways, kind of like a pirate hat.
The Christmas tree can then be glued to the center for a hilarious Christmas tree hat!
