During the holiday season we love doing Christmas tree crafts. (One of our favorites is this sponge painted shape Christmas tree!) These festive Christmas crafts for kids are a great way for children to help decorate the home or classroom for the upcoming holiday!

What I really love about our woven Christmas tree craft is how unique it looks. And, not only does it really stand out when completed, but weaving with paper actually gives children practice with fine motor skills and developing eye hand coordination too! This post contains affiliate links.

Materials for Woven Christmas Tree Craft

Directions for Making Woven Christmas Tree Craft

1. Fold one sheet of green construction paper in half vertically. Cut one-inch slits down the folded center. (Be sure not to cut all the way to the edge.)

2. Cut your contrasting green paper vertically into one-inch strips of paper so they are as tall as your vertical paper with slits.

3. Weave the strips through the slits in the paper.

4. Tear off strips of masking tape to create a triangular tree shape onto your woven paper. (This tape will hold the strips in place when cutting.)
