Gather the materials for Christmas tree
You need a few things to start the project. Construction paper, clear tape, marker, scissors, and craft glue and a glue stick or hot glue gun are all that you will need. While these are the necessary materials for making the tree, the decorating materials would differ according to the extent of decoration you want to have, from something very simple by using paint and glitter to more complex decorations comprising of stickers, paper cutouts and any other things that come to mind.
Cut the paper to form the tree
Take two pieces of construction paper, and the place is back to back and then fold it along the center line to make it half. On the outside of the paper stack, use markers to outline a Christmas tree cut from the middle vertically. By cutting along the lines through both sheets of paper, you are now ready with two identical trees. For making a large tree, you need two full-size sheets.
Next, cut slits in the tree shapes and slide the two pieces along the slits by matching the midlines in such way so that when you open the tree along the fold, it stands on the ground with one tree at right angles to the other.
With the tree firmly standing in place, unbridle your creative imaginations to decorate it so that it dazzles and shines.
