Classroom craft: Christmas tree gift cone

Christmas tree gift cone

Florence and her daughter Primrose love crafting together. Here, they show us how to make a Christmas tree gift cone. 

“This versatile craft would make a fantastic gift or alternative cracker as it could be filled with chocolate coins, sweets or fruit. It would also make a wonderful Christmas tree decoration. You could even attach some elastic and turn your creation into a festive party hat. This multi-textured craft is perfect for practising fine motor skills, scissor skills and enables children to express their creativity.”

You will need:

  • Circle of card or pre-cut cone shape- if you’re using a circle of card then cut a quarter out of it before decorating to make the folding part easier.
  • Green paint
  • Sequins, pom poms, stickers, glitter
  • Gold or silver card
  • PVA glue
  • Scissors
  • Sponge or brushes
  • Stapler

Step 1

Using a sponge or brush, paint your card with green paint and leave it to dry.

Step 2

Once your paint has dried, dab on some pva glue and decorate your tree with your chosen embellishments and then set it aside to completely dry.

Step 3

Cut a star out of gold or silver card.

Step 4

Roll your card into a cone shape and secure with staples.

Step 5

Attach the star to the top of your Christmas tree cone with some PVA glue.
