Glitter Christmas Trees

 You’ll need:

  • Small polystyrene foam cones (I got a pack of 6 from Kmart for $3)
  • Soft confetti or small/fine glitter
  • Craft glue or double sided sticky tape
  • Clear contact
  • White card or pre-cut paper stars
  • Scissors

Before you start this project with your child, make sure you have everything set-up. It’s best to prepare your foam cone with the craft glue OR double sided sticky tape before they begin so it’s nice and tacky, ready for sticking.

Put some the confetti/glitter into a tray to keep it all in the one place (and to minimise mess!). Your child can then roll the cone over and over again getting all the little pieces to stick to it, creating a lovely homemade Christmas decoration.

Once it’s dried it’s best to cover it in contact to keep all the little tiny pieces on there – you’ll definitely need to do this if you've used double sided sticky tape as they will drop off over time.

Cut out, or help your child to cut out a star for the top of the tree. You can also buy pre-cut stars for very little cost from most craft places.

Make a small cut at the top of the tree. With a touch of glue, stick a star in place.

  

Fuzzy Christmas Trees

 You’ll need:

  • Small polystyrene foam cones
  • 20+ pipe cleaners for a cone
  • White card or pre-cut paper stars
 *This is a little tricky for the younger ones and I had to do most of it with Miss Two but she still helped by choosing the colours and poking them in the foam.
Start by poking the end of the pipe cleaner in one part of the foam and with tension, tightly wrap it around the cone then push the end tip into the foam to secure it. Continue this until you can’t see anymore of the foam.
Make a small cut at the top of the tree. With a touch of glue, stick a star in place.
  
What other creative ideas can you think of to make these cones festive for Christmas?

OMG I've just had the strangest flash back of making a glitter xmas tree like this when I was in primary school. Weird! But yep now I have plenty of ideas for the school holidays with the kids. xx
