What You'll Need:

Colored cardstock

Standard hole punch

Glue stick

Star hole punch


Different size circle punches (optional)

Make It:

  1. Cut different-size circles from the different shades of green cardstock or scrapbook paper. Or using different-size circle punches, have the kids punch circles.
  2. Using a standard hole punch, make the "ornaments" from various bright colors of paper. Glue the green circles together in a triangular shape (to resemble a Christmas tree).
