Today I will share a tutorial on “how to make a paper tree” along with a small story behind the idea of making paper tree craft.
One day, I was returning to my home after the job. Coincidentally I met with my school friend after a long time on the bus. We talked a lot; especially, we memorized our school time. During the conversation, We also discussed the topic of the School project exhibition. She shared that her kid named Ayan had recently participated in the school exhibition in which Ayan made the beautiful house model.
While elaborating the creation of the house model, she said that the purchased tree and grass were too costly & not realistic. This point touched my heart. Since we mostly use a DIY tree in school project models and art and craft decorations, I have decided to share the idea of making a tree out of paper to help all parents and kids.

Instructions - Paper Tree Making Craft for Kids
Step 1: Take a newspaper and Split 2 CM wide a long strip.
Step 2: Start quelling this strip to make a roll.
Step 3: To make tree stem, hold the quelled roll in one hand and pull its inner edge to the upper side by another hand.
Step 4: Apply fevicol (glue) around this stem to make a strong foundation.
Step 5: Next color the stem brown. I have colored it with the help of a sketch. You can use acrylic color instead.
Step 6: Now, let’s make leaves. We will cut the paper into leave shape. Either cut the white color paper into leave shapes and color them green as I did or use green color paper and cut the leaves.
Step 7: Fringe the edges of leaves with the help of scissors.
Step 8: Prepare a thin and small straw of newspaper and attach all the leaves around it with glue.
Step 9: Put this lean straw into the stem and fix it with glue.
