Beautiful Christmas tree made of paper is very simple and fast! We only need to take a sheet of colored paper and scissors. This Christmas tree made of paper will be a beautiful crafts for the holidays.

You can decorate your own Christmas tree with homemade decorations of small cones, nuts, beads, bows, and tinsel of a contrasting color. Get small bells-toys and fix them on the Christmas tree with glue. For the Christmas tree to be higher, make a stand for it, for example, from a small flowerpot: paste a circle of cardboard to it and secure the Christmas tree there.

So, for the assembly you will need:

  • green paper;
  • ruler;
  • compass;
  • glue;
  • scissors;
  • pencil or tube for juices, cocktails.

Step 1.

Use a compass to draw several circles on the paper. Make each new circle smaller by 1–2 cm less than the previous one. Choose the number and size of the circles yourself, depending on what size of tree you go to see. Cut circles are tiers of our future Christmas tree.

Step 2.

Fold each circle in half once, the second time and the third time: each circle must be folded in half three times. To make the fold lines clear, use scissors around the edges.

Step 3.

Spread out the circles and cut a hole in the center of each hole that should match the diameter of the pencil or tube — it all depends on what you will use.

Step 4.

Glue the pencil or tube with green or brown paper.

Step 5.

Now is the time to collect the Christmas tree. All tiers neatly nanizhite on the basis - a pencil or a tube.

Step 6.

Decorate the top of the Christmas tree with a beautiful bead or a star. You can also decorate the tree with sparkles and pieces of chocolate foil.

So, for the assembly you will need:

  • green paper;
  • scissors;
  • pencil;
  • glue;
  • compass;
  • ruler;
  • needle;
  • wire.

Step 1.

On a green paper with a compass draw a circle of sufficient size - this will be the lower tier of your future Christmas tree. Next, draw another circle inside the first circle, departing from the contour of the first circle a little more than half the radius. Using the ruler, divide the circle into 12 sectors.

Step 2.

Make a cut along the lines, the depth to the inner (second) circle.

Step 3.

Roll the sector into a cone that needs to be fixed with glue.

Step 4.

In the same way, prepare the remaining tiers, gradually reducing their size.

Step 5.

With a needle, make a hole in the center of each blank.

Step 6.

Coil the bottom of the wire.

Step 7.

All the tiers of the Christmas tree should be collected on the basis of - wire. You can fix the Christmas tree on top with a cone made of the same paper.

So, for the assembly you will need:

  • green paper strips 5 mm wide;
  • four strips of 1 cm;
  • red and yellow stripes 3-5 mm wide;
  • toothpicks;
  • glue (instant and PVA).

Step 1.

Use pre-prepared green strips 30, 20, 15 and 10 cm long. Twist them with a toothpick, then remove and let the strips slightly dissolve. Attach the end of each strip with PVA glue and give all the spirals a drop shape, holding and slightly pulling one of the ends of the spiral upwards.

Step 2.

Tightly wind the broad green strips on a toothpick and glue the tip to them, not allowing it to dissolve. This is the trunk of your Christmas tree.

Step 3.

For the top of the Christmas tree, make a drop of 30 cm long green stripe.

Step 4.

Begin to collect the Christmas tree, fixing its elements with instant glue. Glue the details of the barrel and allow the glue to dry.

Step 5.

Insert a toothpick into the inside of the stem and stick the droplets. To glue start with the smallest twigs, which are attached to the top of the tree.

Step 6.

Make toys out of yellow and pink stripes, twisting the paper without the help of a toothpick. You can secure the ends of the strips until the paper is unwound, or you can make the toys a little looser and give them the shape of small droplets. Glue the balls to your favorite branches.

Step 7.

Glue a drop and at the very top of it - do not forget about it! - secure the decoration.

Step 8.

If you wish, you can make a stand for the Christmas tree. For this you need to make nine curls of white paper strips. Glue the curls tightly together and fasten the Christmas tree on a snowy white stand with glue. For full naturalness, the stand can be decorated with cotton wool.

Christmas tree for the new year of cardboard

Paper fir tree

So, for the assembly you will need:

  • colored cardboard;
  • glue;
  • scissors;
  • hole puncher;
  • a small rod with a diameter approximately equal to the diameter of the holes, which are obtained from the punch;
  • decorations.

Step 1.

Take a rectangular cardboard, fold it several times (as shown in the picture) and in the center use a hole punch to make holes.

Step 2.

Then take the cardboard and cut it “at an angle” so that the hand-made article finally looks like a Christmas tree.

Step 3.

Pull the stick into the hole. If it does not hold firmly, then secure it in place of contact with cardboard with glue.

Step 4.

Decorate the Christmas tree. Jewelry can also be fixed with glue.

Christmas tree from the magazine

Paper fir tree

The material for such crafts will serve one large magazine or several small magazines. If the magazine has a hard cover, then it is desirable to remove it.

Step 1.

Start from the top right corner, bend the page at a 45 degree angle.

Step 2.

Bend the sheet diagonally and again in half.

Step 3.

Angle that goes beyond the boundaries of the magazine, tuck up.

Step 4.

Do the same with the other pages and end up with an unusual origami tree.

Christmas tree of sweets

Paper fir tree

Pay attention that the color of the candy wrapper does not coincide with the color of the Christmas-tree decor. If you decide to use the rain, then pick it up with a short “nap” so that the candies are noticeable.

So, for the assembly you will need:

  • 500–600 grams of sweets in a bright wrapper;
  • thick cardboard;
  • glue, scissors and double-sided tape;
  • Christmas decor: rain, a small star for the crown.

Step 1.

Make a cone from thick cardboard, cut a semicircle and wrap it. Glue the edges with superglue, which will firmly fasten and quickly grab.

Step 2.

Cut the bottom of the cone into strips, fold it inwards and glue the circle on top, which will help to make the base as stable as possible.

Step 3.

If you are preparing a Christmas tree as a gift for a child, then you can hide a small typewriter or a soft toy inside the cone. You only need to think about opening the bottom for the Christmas tree.

Step 3.

Glue the cone with double-sided tape, remove both protective films. Next, glue a row of candy from the bottom. Candy to scotch must be very carefully pressed, otherwise they will quickly disappear.

That is why it is desirable to choose sweets light in weight. If you decide to use heavy chocolates, then stick them to the tree immediately with glue.

Step 4.

Decorate the top of a Christmas tree made of candy with a light star made of wood or foam, then disguise the top with serpentine or tinsel. Your sweet Christmas tree is ready!

Christmas tree of tinsel with their own hands

Paper fir tree

So, for the assembly you will need:

  • tinsel 2 m;
  • watman paper;
  • PVA glue;
  • Moment glue
  • scissors;
  • pencil;
  • needle with thread;
  • glue brush.

Step 1.

On a drawing paper sheet draw a circle with a radius of 25 cm. To draw such a large circle evenly, make the following fixture. By the end of the thread with a needle, tie a pencil, stick a needle in the middle of the sheet of drawing paper, stretch the thread and draw a circle with the pencil of the required diameter.

Step 2.

To create a cone-base of a Christmas tree, you only need half of this circle, so we cut the circle in half.

Step 3.

Connect the edges of the halves overlapping and fix them with glue - for this purpose it is better to use the “Moment” glue. The base of the Christmas tree is ready.

Step 4.

To glue the tinsel to the base, apply PVA glue on top of the cone and carefully glue the tinsel in a circle. Tinsel is well mounted on the PVA. So glue over the entire cone and allow the glue to dry. Herringbone tinsel ready!
