The tree is up. Our favorite Christmas books are out to read. The Christmas count down has begun. There was just one problem, the dollhouse didn’t have a tree yet. This 3-D Christmas tree craft was the perfect solution.
We started off with 2 identical trees cut from cardboard. I cut a slit down the middle of each – stopping 1/4″ from the top on one and 1/4″ from the bottom on the other one.
Then I gave my daughter the trees to color green. I also gave her a sheet of small, circular stickers to put on as ornaments. Paint would be great for this. My daughter chose to use crayons, and since it was her tree, that’s what we did.
After doing one side on each tree, I turned them over and told her to do the other side. Once both sides were decorated, I slid the two trees together to make a 3-dimensional Christmas tree for her dollhouse. I also ran some clear tape down the sides to help keep it together.
Of course, now that the dollhouse family has a tree, we will have to make a few gifts to put under it.
Don’t have a dollhouse that needs a tree? It would make a great tree for Thomas the Train or just to sit on an end table, too.
