These Paper Doily Christmas Trees deserve a place on your Christmas craft to-do list. The beautiful frills and patterns of paper doilies made a beautiful texture once the trees were painted and assembled. My girls really enjoyed this project, AND it was quick and easy, too!

Gather Your Materials
For this project you'll need:
Paint The Doilies
Let your children paint at least one doily in each size that you have. It will be helpful to put a tray or pan down underneath your work, since the doilies have hundreds of little holes!
My girls painted in several shades of green, with both regular paint and watercolor. Set the doilies aside to dry.
Assemble Christmas Trees
Once the paint has dried, cut the doilies into wedges of various sizes. Make sure you have some that are big enough to be the base of the tree, and others that are narrow enough to be the tip top!
Let your child pick out different wedges to use to assemble a Christmas tree! Glue the pieces in place on a piece of construction paper.
Don't worry too much about gluing it down perfectly flat. The ripples and wrinkles add wonderful texture!
