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
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • 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.

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.
