Easy Christmas Tree Craft from Music Books
I am participating in a blog hop with other Maritime parenting bloggers! Please scroll down to check out their posts on great things to do with your family during the holidays!
Every year, on the first Sunday in advent, our church hosts an advent workshop where adults and kids rotate around various stations making crafts.
This year’s most popular craft, by far were these Christmas trees made from old music books. It was an idea that we had seen on Pinterest, but changed things around based on the craft supplies we had on hand.
Start with a wooden base. One of our friend’s dad took a log and cut it into slices. However, you could use anything that was heavy enough not to topple over.
We were going to drill a small hole in the base of each round, but then we discovered these wooden beads! We glued a wooden bead to the middle of each slice.
Then we cut triangles out of pages from an old music book. If you didn’t have any old music books, you could photocopy the music for a favourite Christmas carol, too!
We folded the triangle like an accordion, and then carefully stuck a bamboo skewer, fold by fold, through the tree.
Then, we glued a star sticker to the top. Some of them, we just left blank, too!
Then, the skewer rested inside the bead.
They were done in less than 5 minutes and look beautiful!
One friend made several of different sizes and heights.
This is an easy and beautiful craft that any one can make!
