Craft Club Christmas Trees

Hello lovely people!

At craft club this term we have been making some fantastic pom pom Christmas trees and I wanted to share the finished trees with you.

First the children had to wind different shades of green wool around some cardboard rings.  I had made sure we had a small, medium and large circle.

Then I asked my dad for some old plant pots.   Once they had been washed the children painted them with glitter glue and used a glue gun to carefully stick fancy beads and ribbon onto the pots.

 Once it had all dried l placed a pencil and lots of wadding  into the pot.  After this I helped the children to place their pom poms onto the pencils.

 Then it was time to make a star for the top of the tree.   The children used felt and drew a star shape. Then  we used simple sewing stitches to sew it together.

 Next we used beads and tinsel to decorate our trees!   Ta dah!' Look at our lovely trees!
