I love how bright, modern and non traditional these Christmas Trees look. Grab some straws, string and anything you might have in your art box to decorate your cardboard mini Christmas trees.
2. Paper Straw Christmas Trees
These lovely bright paper straw Christmas trees are so simple to make, you probably can’t stop with making one. They would also look great as gift tags or on handmade Christmas cards.

Make this set of Santa and reindeer puppets with your little one and let them have fun doing a puppet show or wear them as masks.
