DIY Christmas Tree Decorations for Kids

DIY Christmas Tree Decoration

It’s that festive time of the year. Which can only mean one thing, it’s time to jazz up the house with Christmas decorations.

This year many of us will be spending most of the season indoor, which for parents of younger kids means finding extra ways to keep everyone entertained. We hope this list of DIY Christmas tree decorations will help fill some of that time.

Paint a Pinecone

This is a super simple one, but personally we feel simple decorations are often the best! All that is required for this activity is a pinecone, string and paint! Simply paint the pinecone with a colour of your choice. It may get a tad messy, but that’s all part of the fun. Let it dry for a couple of hours then thread the string through one of the gaps and tie it to create a circle. Now you have a fun nature themed decoration that is also eco-friendly! 

If you’re feeling extra fancy you can even glue some biodegradable glitter to the pinecone for a bit of extra bling!

Pom Poms

If your little one is a fan of all things fluffy, then this is the decoration for them. All you need is some wool of your choice and a fork. We like to use red and white wool for this task as it reminds us of Santa’s hat, but really any colour would look great! We’ve attached a small video for you to watch below, on how to make these super cute Christmas tree pom poms. Watch video here.

Lolly Pop Stars 

It may not be the season for ice lollies but these lolly pop sticks can be reused to create quirky tree ornaments. A pack of lolly sticks can also be purchased from any craft shop. As seen in the photo below, all you need to do is use a bit of PVA glue to attach the stick together in the centre. Next, decorate to your little one’s heart’s content. Paint it, stick sequins on, anything goes! Finally tape a piece of string to one of the sticks. There you have it, a super easy decoration!

Orange Decor

This activity is for all you adults out there! It requires a little more patience, but we promise it will be worth it for the sweet smell of orange as you enter the room. Cut the oranges into slices, around 1-2cm wide. Pat them dry using some kitchen roll and poke a small hole for the string to go through later. Then, put them in the oven at 120 degrees for 3 hours. Make sure to turn them every 30 mins or so, so they don’t stick or burn. It’s important to bake them on a cooling rack over a baking tray so the air can circulate. Finally, tie some string through the hole and viola, a citrus smelling decoration that will look cute on any tree! 

Colour in the Happy Linen Paper Baubles 

This decoration is perfect for any Dinosaur or Unicorn fans. Simply colour in and cut out the baubles found on the sheet below. We’ve attached some instructions on how to make them a decoration that will last for many years to come. In completing this Christmas activity, your little one will have the chance to win a bed set!
