Rustic Christmas tree craft for kids

Sometimes the simplest crafts are the cutest. This rustic-inspired Christmas tree craft is easy for little hands to make, and it it makes for a sweet personal holiday gift.


Here’s how to make this rustic Christmas tree craft:

1. Cut strips of ribbon to different lengths and have your child arrange them from shortest to longest (or just trim them later).

2. Tie strips of ribbon to twig, starting at the top with the shortest length.

3. Add a hanging loop by tying twine to the ribbon at the top of the tree.


Tip: If your child is too young to arrange the ribbons by size order, you can tie them all to the twig and trim them into a tapered shape with scissors later.
