These coffee filter paper Christmas trees are beautiful and simple to make together! No matter how many things are on your holiday list, schedule in a little bit of time to make a sweet craft like this one with your children.
Some years are busier than others, but I’m confident the things our kids will remember the most are the times we took the time to do something WITH them. I’m guilty of setting up a project for them and then going in the other room to scroll headlines or catch up on laundry or get distracted by something stupid on my phone.
But then when I sit down to actually make a project with my kids, something crazy happens. I have fun! It’s relaxing to use watercolors at the table. And even when one of the kids dumps the watercolor water all over my pants, I still have fun!
Make A Coffee Filter Paper Christmas Tree
Simple, affordable crafts are great because you can make more than one at a time or do one and then start another, while the craft supplies are still out. It’s not a one and done kind of project! This sweet coffee filter paper craft is perfect for topping presents, making into an ornament, or hanging on a wreath.
Start with the following supplies:
- Coffee Filters (Three Per Tree)
- Green Marker or Watercolors
- Brown Construction Paper
Seriously friends, these coffee filter paper Christmas trees are so simple to make!
Fold each coffee filter in half, then fold in half again. This should give you a triangle of sorts- it has one curved edge.
Color or paint the front of the triangles green. Feel free to add color dots, as ornaments, little squiggly lines as tinsel, or leave them green.
And because someone out there (me) has a cool kid who wants a purple Christmas tree.. just let your child make their craft purple. Who cares if it’s a perfect green tree or a wild purple one with handrawn lightsaber ornaments?!
It’s all about the process. And the memories!
Next step, stack the triangles on top of each other and glue them into a Christmas tree shape.
Finally, attach a colored popsicle stick to the bottom to be the trunk!
What Else Can I Do With Coffee Filter Paper Christmas Trees?
– Cut out ornaments from construction paper and glue on this tree.
– Use construction paper for the trunk instead of a popsicle stick.
– Hook a string to the top to make an ornament.
– Arrange several trees on a rope with clothespins to create a simple, festive banner.
– Tape to the front of a Christmas card.
– Attach to the top of a gift.
This is such a fun and simple Christmas craft that can be used in many ways. Enjoy making memories together!
