When it's not a pipe. And the Christmas tree!

Creating paper tube Christmas trees is a pretty fun activity that kids will love. The main thing is to pre-prepare tubes of colored paper. The tubes should be of different lengths, but the same thickness. Pasted on a flat surface in the form of a Christmas tree, they will be a cute and unusual gift.

Christmas trees from the forest? No, from a cone!

It doesn't matter what will serve as the basis for making cones: white, colored, craft or crepe paper. It doesn't matter what will serve as a decor:rhinestones, beads, pushpins or circles of colored paper. The main thing is that the result will always be the same: cute hand-made gizmos that will easily become the basis of the most stylish New Year's composition.

Making tutorial:

  1. Cut out a circle from paper, cut it in half.
  2. Roll the paper semi-circle into a cone and fasten with glue, stapler, tape or paper clip.
  3. Fix decorative elements on the surface of the cone. Glue rhinestones; in rows, starting from the bottom, stick white or colored paper mugs; stick curly push pins.

Using circles of different sizes or from colored paper of different shades, you can create several crafts in the same style.

Christmas trees, dense forest…

New Year 2023 will be remembered by both adults and children if you complement the festive table setting with original cards with the names of guests.

To make these simple paper Christmas trees you will need:

  1. From thick paper of suitable colors, cut an even number of triangles - future Christmas trees.
  2. Secure a wooden toothpick or skewer on the wrong side of the triangle with adhesive tape. If you use double-sided tape and stick a small strip of it on the wrong side of the triangle, the Christmas tree will turn out to be double-sided. In this case, it will look beautiful not only for its owner, but also for his table neighbors.
  3. Stick a stick with a paper triangle into a chocolate candy in foil of a suitable color.
  4. Write a name on the Christmas tree (or on a white strip glued on top)guest and set the figurine in the middle of the plate.


For a simple and interesting craft, you will need several circles of different sizes and colors. Each circle must be folded in the same way as paper for cutting out a snowflake is folded. After the circles can be slightly straightened and strung on a vertically installed skewer (bamboo stick), fixed at the base for stability.

From cardboard - does not mean ugly

Cardboard crafts decorated by children to their taste will be a wonderful New Year's gift that can be prepared together in kindergarten.

The symbol of the New Year 2023, made of ordinary packaging cardboard, will look very stylish if you make holes in it with the help of New Year's figured hole punches.

Corrugated Paper Trees

To create a three-dimensional figurefrom paper you will need:

  1. Connect two adjacent corners of a square of corrugated paper and glue the sides of the square that touched in this way. The result should be a corrugated semicircle. If there is no special paper, you can use plain paper (optionally colored) and fold the square of paper with an accordion yourself.
  2. Two paper semicircles fasten together with glue.
  3. Make circles of different sizes in the same or different colors.
  4. String the circles on a reinforced skewer.
  5. Decorate the top with a large bead or star.
