Child’s Block Christmas Tree
Imagine how cute this Christmas Tree would be in an nursery or child’s playroom? The block Christmas tree uses child’s toys, building blocks and some small holiday odds and ends.
The project is so easy to do. To make it you will need the following materials:
- A large piece of wood the size you want your display to be.
- Plaid fabric
- Gold scalloped edging
- Green felt
- Child’s ABC blocks
- Small artificial Christmas trees with snow
- Small Christmas themed pieces
- Small children’s toys
- Hot glue and glue gun
- Small wooden Angel
Cover the top of the wood with the green felt and tack it down with hot glue along the edges.
Cover the edges of the wood with the plaid fabric and glue it where it meets. Add the scalloped edging at the top where the felt and plaid fabric meet and use it to cover the joint, gluing with hot glue as you go.
Arrange the ABC blocks in the shape of a Christmas tree. Place the Artificial trees at the base of the Block Christmas tree. Arrange the child’s toys and Christmas themed piece around the base and also on the blocks in a pleasing arrangement.
Place the Angel on the top.
Note: there is no need to glue the toys in place unless you want to keep the arrangement for another year. The beauty of this is that the children can use it to play as well as wait in anticipation for Santa to come!
Inspiration for this project is from a vintage issue of Crafts ‘n Things.
