Wrapping Paper Christmas Tree Craft

Never sure what to do with those little pieces of Christmas wrapping paper that are just too small to use on any of your presents? Or what to do with the card board tube that comes inside the wrapping paper? 
Well, keep reading, because I have the perfect, very adorable solution to your problem....

A Wrapping Paper Christmas Tree


I was inspired to make this craft after seeing something very similar to it while working my per diem speech therapy job over the weekend at a Skilled Nursing Facility. The ones the patients had hanging on their doors were made with fabric and yarn though, not wrapping paper and ribbon, but they were definitely very cute!

This craft is especially fun to make with your child if he or she is age appropriate to cut, tape, and glue.

Here's what I used to make this craft:
Hot glue gun and glue
Scotch tape
wrapping paper (variety)
ribbon
puff balls
scissors

How I made it:

1.) Cut cardboard tube into several pieces of various sizes.
2.) Using tape, wrap each cardboard piece, individually.
3.) Use glue gun to adhere each wrapped tube together.
4.) Glue on puff balls in various spots, and hang tree on door knob for display.
