My children are extremely excited for the upcoming holidays, and every day they ask how many days until Christmas? I thought it would be a good idea to bridle some of their excitement by doing an art project, so we made some modern Christmas trees out of paper!
We cut ours to: (for a 8.5″ x 11″ piece of paper)
strip 1) 7″ x 1.5″
strip 2) 5.5″ x 1.5″
strip 3) 4″ x 1.5″
strip 4) 2.5″ x 1.5″
2) Cut a paper “tree trunk” to about 1 3/4″ and glue it to the bottom center of the paper
