With a few materials, these easy to create trees are a fun little craft for the younger ones.

How We Did It

Foam Christmas Trees
Print out cone template and cut out. Gather your remaining materials.
Foam Christmas Trees
Place template on foam sheet. Trace outline and cut out shape. (V.'s not quite old enough for scissors yet--but of course this is a step that slightly older kids can do on their own.)
Foam Christmas Trees
Secure cone around, edge to edge. Tape inside to secure. After we completed the decoration process, we decided a more secure closure was necessary. Later in the process we added glue to secure further. That is a step you can do now, before you start decorating, or wait until the end like we did.
Foam Christmas Trees

Decorate your little tree with the foam stickers. Have fun with this part! V was filled with excitement as she was decorating her trees.

Foam Christmas Trees
Secure edges with craft glue. V wanted to do this part all by herself - I held it in place while she glued. Press each edge together with clothespins, or another tool like a binder clip that will hold it together to dry.
Foam Christmas Trees
Let the trees dry completely, approximately 1-2 hours. Once dry you will have some pretty little Christmas trees! We turned our trees into homemade kiddo presents, and gifted one to each set of grandparents.
