1. Begin by printing out the 3D Christmas tree craft template on 3 sheets of colored cardstock paper. Cut out your six paper Christmas trees.
2. Fold each of the six paper Christmas trees in half. Use a glue stick to add glue to one of the folded halves of a Christmas tree. Then attach another folded half onto the glue, aligning the pieces together. Continue gluing and adding the Christmas tree halves until all six are attached. Then add glue to the two ends and attach them together to finish forming the 3D Christmas tree.
3. Peel off the backing of one of your foam star stickers and place a toothpick onto it. Then peel off the backing of another foam star sticker and place it on the toothpick aligning it up with the other foam star stick. Place some glue at the end of the toothpick and place it down inside the top of the 3D Christmas tree.
4. Finish your 3D Christmas tree craft by adding embellishments around the different sections of the tree. Get creative with what you have at home; sequins, small poms, craft gems or circle stickers.
Your 3D Christmas Tree Craft is complete!
