Now that the weather is getting colder and we are spending more time inside than outside, it is time for us to craft. Even better? When our craft is so cute that we can give it away as a Christmas present so that I can cross someone off my gift list (multitasking for the win!). So let me present to you one of the most basic but adorable Christmas crafts that you can make using things that are cluttering up your home. Yes, that’s right, this easy Christmas tree craft also helps you declutter. See, I told you it was amazing.
So what do you need? A puzzle with missing pieces (c’mon, I know we all have at least one of these hanging around), green paint, paint brushes, markers, glue, cardboard, and any other decorations. It’s really that simple.
Turn over all of the puzzle pieces so that the blank side is showing. Melissa and Doug wooden puzzles are great for this since they are sturdy and have a great light wooden color. Paint each puzzle piece green and let dry.
Once the puzzle pieces are dry, glue them onto a piece of cardboard in a triangular shape. Remember, it doesn’t have to be perfect…I mean, have you seen any Christmas trees that are perfect triangles?
Decorate all of the green puzzle pieces with markers, glitters, pom moms….anything!
Add a star to the top of the tree using tissue paper, glitter, etc.
Draw a tree trunk for the Christmas tree…and you’re done!
Ta da! Your house is now less cluttered and you have spent some time bonding with your kiddos to come up with an adorable and easy Christmas Tree craft.
