Egg Carton Christmas Tree Craft

0

It’s not even Thanksgiving yet and my son has been begging for us to put our Christmas tree up. I usually wait until the day after Thanksgiving so I thought maybe I could hold him over with an easy Christmas tree craft so he could decorate his own little Christmas tree himself. This is a simple holiday craft that reuses egg cartons and some random craft supplies as the Christmas tree decorations. I let Jace pick out what we should use to decorate our ‘trees’ with and it was so fun seeing just how creative he got with this project.

To begin you will want to take an egg carton and cut your pieces for the tree: a row of 3, a row with 2, and two single egg cartons. Take your brown paint and paint the stump of your Christmas tree using a single egg carton that you cut out. The rest of the egg cartons will be painted green.

After your paint has dried you’ll want to take a hot glue gun (this step for an adult) and glue the egg cartons to a thick piece of card stock paper like the image below so that it looks like a tree.

And finally you can start decorating! We used everything from pom poms to buttons and even glitter glue, so be creative!

If you are creating the canvas with the grass, you will first dip your child’s finger in green paint and have them press it along the bottom of the canvas to create grass blades.
