Tealight Christmas Trees #24XmasCrafts Advent
Tealight Christmas Trees
Day 11 of our #24XmasCrafts advent and today we’re making tealight Christmas trees.
You will need:
- A battery operated tea light
- Printed Christmas card or paper
- Something pointy to make holes in the card
Draw a square that’s big enough to fit your tealight on and draw round it. Add more squares to make a 9 square grid.
Draw triangles on the four middle squares as in the photo.
On one side of each triangle, draw a flap which will be used to stick the sides together.
Cut it out
Score every line to make it easier to fold
Using something sharp and pointy, poke holes on every triangle to let the light shine through
Now fold up the triangles and glue each flap, one a time. Stick together to form a pyramid.
Place on the light and switch it on 🙂 If we get time, we’re going to make more using different patterns and sizes.
Half way there already! For day 12 of our 24 Xmas crafts advent, we’ll be making paper angels.
