Step 2: Your Arty Crafty Kids can use their creativity to decorate their trees.
Against white card stock, we decided to collage our Christmas Trees with tissue paper squares, using a range of cool winter colours (blue, purple, green), mixed with a few warm tones (pink and red).
Step 3: Spread a generous amount of PVA glue across the template and place multiple tissue paper squares across the template until the tree is filled.
Encourage the Arty Crafty Kids to layer the tissue paper throughout the process and ask:
What happens to the colours when you layer the tissue paper…
– Are they lighter or darker?
– Have you made any new colours?
– How would you describe the new shades?
To secure the tissue paper, spread a thin layer of PVA glue on top of the completed collage.
Leave to thoroughly dry and then repeat the process with the blank side.
Step 4: Once the glue has dried, cut out the Christmas Trees.
Cut along the dotted lines; one from the top and the other from the bottom of the tree.
Step 5: Connect the Tree to make to create a free standing 3D Christmas Tree.
