Paper Plate Christmas Tree Craft

Christmas craft is one of my favourite types of craft to do with my children. It may be because I love Christmas and enjoy getting the house ready to celebrate with friends and family.

These Paper Plate Christmas Trees are the perfect decoration to display on a buffet or TV cabinet to add some festive flair to your home. My three year old loved decorating her tree once it was put together. This craft is a little fiddly and can be a bit messy so prepare well with a heap of newspaper or junk mail for the painting part; the result is pretty cool.
