Spruce up the home with this spiral Christmas tree craft the kids can make to make your home all cozy and warm for the holiday season!
We don’t entertain a whole lot, really not at all. But as you can tell, we do like to craft for the holidays and we make sure to spread the holiday cheer throughout the home with music, Christmas smells, and fun crafts to brighten up all the rooms!
We decorate the windows, hang Christmas decorations from our curtain rods, make crafts for the season, put on Christmas music and indulge ourselves with a Sweet Holiday Treat™ smell from our sponsor, Glade® 4 oz. Jar Candles.
Our latest Christmas craft the kids made to add to the warmth in our home for the holidays that are coming up so incredibly quick is this adorable, and very easy to make, spiral Christmas trees!
I cut circles from green 12×12 scrapbook paper. I used one of our dinner plates to trace.
For George, I cut the spiral because, while he’s a good cutter, he’s not able to follow lines yet, especially circles.
I drew the spiral on for Henry and he cut his own out.
Huge tip: The lighter the paper you have, the thicker the spirals will have to be, or shorter. The thinner the spirals are, it will stretch out more and won’t look like a Christmas tree.
If you cut thinner spirals, you may just have to cut the tree shorter so it look like a Christmas tree and not just a long tail.
After they’re cut, lay them flat again on a table and add decorations to it!
We used good ol’ school glue to add sequins and glitter to the Christmas trees.
Add glue and glitter around the spirals!
Another tip from lessons learned: Do the glitter part before you add the sequins, the glitter will stick to the glue and sequins you first added if they’re not dry yet!
Let them sit flat to dry.
The center is the top of the Christmas tree.
Punch a hole in that center piece to tie a string to.
Hang it up from the ceiling (using some tape) or tie it around a rod, or ceiling fan chain!
Such a great touch to our home to make it warm and inviting this holiday season, don’t you think?
Pair it with the The Glade® Winter Collection, such as the Glade® Limited Edition Winter Collection, Sweet Holiday Treat™, or anything seasonal, there’s always something new, and it just puts me in the mood for Christmas! And puts a nice big smile on my face, and my kids’ faces, and that’s what I’m looking for this holiday season.
