Paper Plate Christmas Crafts

Hello lovelies and I hope you’re well today! I’m good a little tired as last week was just so busy however this week is a slower pace so that’s nice.

In keeping with the Christmassy feels I am posting some great crafts to do with children over the festive period! My boys LOVE these sorts of crafts as they can be put up on the wall etc when they’re done. So the first is….

  5. Now thread some pipe cleaners through to make your tinsel.
  6. Now you can decorate your tree however you want with anything you may have.
  7. Take your small piece of card and make a star or fairy for the top of tree! I used tinfoil for my star.
  8. You can then stick some string or thread so you can hang it up. Don’t forget to let it dry before hanging.

There you have it loves! Two brilliant Christmas crafts for you to enjoy with any littles ones you may have in your life or just by yourself if you’re anything like me (lol). Also you could make the dimensions smaller and turn them into tree decorations instead. These are going to bring that homemade festive feel to any room.
