Christmas is getting closer every day and many families are already setting up the tree at home. So to continue the Christmas spirit and at the same time have a fun time as a family, we share 27 ideas of Christmas tree decorations that you can make with your children.
How about we make safe spheres for kids? They can make these beautiful and colorful spheres with cardboard plates and colored paper.
Spheres with washi tape
We found this idea of spheres for the Christmas tree that are also safe for the little ones, as they are made with washi tape.
Another option to make safe spheres for your little ones is the three-dimensional paper spheres with wallpaper.
Snowmen with paper
A similar craft is the one where we can make nice snowmen with sheets of paper or cardboard.
A little tree with ribbons
For this, we will only need a small branch and slats of different thicknesses. We can do it in green like them, or combine other classic Christmas tones like red, white, or gold.
In addition to being a craft that looks nice as a decoration, we can make this variant of the little tree with ribbons: with a cinnamon stick, which will give us a nice smell.
Trees with yarn or woodland are fun
We could not leave out the list of crafts with thread or wool, which as we know, favor fine motor skills.
Spheres with thread or wool
Another variant of the previous craft is the colored “cookies” with yarn or wool to place on the Christmas tree.
Ornaments with puzzle pieces
If we have some puzzle pieces at home that we no longer use, we can use them to make some Christmas decorations for the Christmas tree.
Snowflake with puzzle pieces
Another option for the puzzle pieces is this DIY of a snowflake.
Photo with puzzles
Continuing with the ideas of Christmas decorations made with puzzle pieces, we found this cute idea: a photo frame to hang on the little tree.
Another idea for a personalized ornament for the Christmas tree is this beautiful craft to make a Christmas candy.
Stars with buttons
The buttons are also a great item for crafts and we have loved how they have decorated these stars to put on the Christmas tree.
Reindeer with paper tube
A “recyclable” craft is this one of some curious reindeer made with the toilet paper tube.
Egg carton saplings
With another recyclable craft idea, we can make some tree ornaments using the egg carton.
A homemade Christmas tree ornament with this material is that you cannot miss when making crafts with felt.
Also with felt, we find these cute Christmas trees which do not have to be perfect to look beautiful.
Small trees with popsicle sticks
One of the most used materials in crafts with children is the popsicle sticks, and we can make Christmas trees with them to later decorate them as we like best.
Curious reindeer with popsicle sticks
The fun thing about popsicle sticks is that despite being a material that is not very manipulable, it allows us to create various shapes and combinations ad with this we can make some curious reindeer hang on the tree.
Christmas elements with popsicle sticks
Another craft that we can do with the popsicle sticks is the Christmas elements. Adding other materials such as paint, Eva rubber, and cotton, we can create a Santa Claus, a snowman, or a Christmas tree.
Gingerbread men with sticks
Continuing with the crafts made with popsicle sticks, we find these very easy little men inspired by gingerbread cookies.
A little tree with a rattlesnake
If we add other elements to the popsicle sticks, we can have a fun result where we can add a little bell also.
Another way to put a spin on popsicle stick crafts is by pleasing them with eye-catching elements.
Spheres with reindeer
If our children are already a little older and we have no concern about taking glass spheres, we can choose to buy ones that are transparent or light in color and decorate them at home.
Spheres with snowmen
Also, we propose another similar idea, but this time using the complete fingerprint of our little ones to make spheres with snowmen.
And if we are going to get our hands dirty, we could make some ornaments with painted reindeer, using the children’s handprints.
Finally, if we have some corks at home we can make this cute Christmas tree ornament craft.
