Paper Trees


These are some trees that my daughter made for Christmas this year. They are so simple but you can get as fancy as you want with them.

Three layers

Paper plate
Crayons/Markers/Colored Pencils

Start by coloring your plate with whatever medium you prefer. Boo made them green but you can make them as colorful as you like.

Next, begin cutting your plate into wedges. You need at least 3, but can go as high as four. Each wedge needs to be slightly smaller than the last. If you want to get really cray, use 2 plates and make a tree worthy of the White House.

Stack your wedges, laying the smaller ones on top of the larger and glue them in place.

Get crazy and decorate! You can just draw your tinsel and ornaments or use glitter, brick brack, gems or whatever else you happen to have on hand. Voila! You have a mini tree for the house.

I have been married for 20 years and have 3 children. My oldest is 20 and currently in the National Guard. My daughters are 15 and 11 and involved in everything. I believe life is difficult enough, that we can find ways to make the everyday just a little easier and perhaps even more simple. I love to cook, shop and make things with the kids.
