Easy Christmas Crafts: Layered Christmas Tree


The Layered Christmas Tree is a fun and easy project using paper with sequins as ornaments, a piece of ribbon and glue.

Instead of sequins, you could easily substitute colorful hole-punch holes for the ornaments.

The project is also fast and useful when several small and inexpensive Christmas trees are needed.

The Steps for How to Make the Easy Christmas Crafts: Layered Christmas Tree:

Print the Layered Christmas Tree pattern.

Cut around the pattern pieces.

Use a pencil to trace the shapes on the paper.

Trace and cut one of the full tree pattern using straight edge scissors.

Trace and cut two each of the tree sections using decorative edge scissors (optional).

Cut a length of ribbon 8 to 10 inches long.

Layered Christmas Tree step 1 cut shapes and ribbon

On one side of the full tree shape, glue one of the largest tree shapes leaving a margin along the sides and bottom.

Layered Christmas Tree step 2 glue first base

Glue one of the mid-sized tree shapes in the middle of the tree overlapping the previous shape and leaving a margin along the sides.

Layered Christmas Tree step 3 glue first middle section

Glue one of the top tree pieces to the full tree overlapping the middle piece and leaving margins on each side.

Layered Christmas Tree step 4 glue first top section

Turn the tree shape over.

Glue the bottom and middle shapes to this side of the tree.

Before gluing the top of the tree, fold the ribbon in half to form a loop.

Position the cut ends over the glue before placing the top portion of the tree.

Layered Christmas Tree step 5 glue hanging loop on opposite side

Position the top tree shape over the ribbon ends and the glue.

Layered Christmas Tree step 6 glue opposite top section

Select 10 mm sequins (gold or silver) for the stars.

Glue one of the sequins to one side of the tree over the top point of the tree.

Layered Christmas Tree step 7 glue sequin star

Select several 5 mm sequins to be the "ornaments" on the Layered Christmas Tree.

I used red, blue and green sequins in a random pattern.

Glue the sequins to the layers of the tree.

(HINT: Use a paper clip as shown in the Stacked Doily Christmas Tree instructions rather than fingers like I did for this one. Works better and not as sticky!)

Layered Christmas Tree step 8 glue sequin ornaments

Turn the tree shape over and add a 10 mm sequin star and the 5 mm sequin ornaments to the other side.

Layered Christmas Tree step 9 glue sequins to other side

The Layered Christmas Tree is finished and ready to display.

Simple and fun, this little tree adds a touch of sparkle and whimsy wherever it is displayed.

Have fun making one, a few or many!

Fast, fun and easy, the Layered Christmas Tree can be a great group project — especially when lots of decorations are needed.
