To make these pipe cleaner Christmas trees, we used:
- Green pipe cleaners (we received our “fuzzy sticks” from craftprojectideas.com)
- Green craft foam
- Something cone shaped, eg a funnel
- Mini pom poms (we used some tiny neon poms and some small glitter poms, both from craftprojectideas.com, but the shimmer poms would also work well!)
- Star-shaped sequins, sequins and/or Spangle Mix
- Corks cut in half
To prepare the craft I cut circles from the green craft foam, and wound the pipe cleaner around the top of the funnel to form a cone shape. Then I glued the pipe cleaner to the foam circle. Kids can help with this stage but because I was planning this for a crafty playdate, I wanted the glue to be dried before the tree was decorated.
The kids glued a star sequin to the top of the tree, then added pom poms and sequins wherever they would like.
For some reason my son didn’t want to make one – so it was lucky that I had his friends round to help me with this craft! Once the decorations had dried I glued the tree onto the cut wine cork. They looked adorable as a little forest!
