Christmas Tree Nature Art- how to make
The Base

Start by making the cardboard tree base. To do this print of the printable and cut out the desired tree shape. Place the cutout tree onto a flat piece of cardboard cut from the cardboard box and trace around with a Sharpie or other pen/ pencil. Remove the tree template and then cut out the tree shape from the cardboard.


Head outside with a bucket or a sheet of cardboard to lay the nature supplies onto. Take cuttings of leaves and flowers. Think about the size of the Christmas Tree base and select leaves and other nature resources that are of a suitable size. What will you put at the top of your tree? Have a look for a standout flower or leaf!


Set up your crafting space so you can easily see all of that gathered nature resources. Cover the cardboard tree with craft glue or the less messy option of double sided sticky tape. Place the leaves and other nature cuttings onto the cardboard base. Think about layering, so put green leaves down first and then decorate with extra flowers. If needed add a little extra glue. Put aside to dry.
