About this deal
This is a great craft to do with kids because it’s so easy and they can really let their imaginations run wild. And when you’re done, you’ll have a unique and one-of-a-kind Christmas tree that everyone will love! The Button Tree
The making is only half the fun. How will you decorate your Cardboard Christmas Tree? Here are a few of our favourites from Instructables makers: Trace a pencil line down the center of each tree. With your box cutter, carefully slice down the pencil line, being sure to only pierce one side of the cardboard (leave the side that’s face-down intact). If you’re using very thin cardboard, you can probably skip this step and just crease your trees down the middle so that they can fold in half. Start by gluing the buttons together in the shape of a tree. Once the glue is dry, decorate your tree however you like! You could use paint, glitter, sequins, or anything else you can think of.This DIY Christmas tree craft is another easy and affordable option. You’ll need a few paper plates, some paint or markers, and some tape or glue. I have become this project’s biggest fan (in case you can’t tell). So let’s make some! How to Make Cardboard Christmas Trees
This design takes DIY cardboard Christmas tree to a whole nother level! The star tree topper, ornaments, and gift boxes are all made out of cardboard! Although, this is a small design it could be scaled to make at multiple sizes; your imagination is the only limitation! Insert the circles into the slits of one of the folded trees and open the tree enough to stand. Add the other two trees onto the circles. Trace a tree onto a sheet of cardboard with your pencil. Consider the size and shape you'd like, and ensure that your tree is symmetrical. Keep in mind that to create one standing tree, you'll need three flat cardboard trees of the exact same size.Fold each tree in half. Create two slits in each tree on the fold, one high and one low on the tree. The slits should be less than half the depth of your cardboard circles (ours are 1.5"). I think these would also look incredible in a group of lots of them — a recyclable forest! Hope you try these out. xoxo Start by drawing a tree shape on a piece of scrapbook paper. Then use the scissors to cut out the shape. Next, fold the tree in half so that the two sides match up. Use the tape to attach the two halves together. Finally, use the ruler to make evenly spaced cuts down both sides of the tree (be sure not to cut all the way through). Once you’re done, unfold your tree and it should look like a three-dimensional Christmas tree!
