Picture of Cardboard box-top Christmas Tree template
We decided against putting up a real Christmas Tree this year, but we still wanted something to decorate as a family.  So, I made a simple Christmas tree from a cardboard box.  Really easy, only required a minimal amount of materials, and our 2 yo son had a ton of fun painting it and helping set it up.  Enjoy!

Step 1: Bill of Materials

1 large white cardboard box (the sturdier the better).
Scissors or utility knife.
Some white glue or wood glue.
1 string of Christmas lights.
Pocket knife or Phillips screwdriver (as hole punch).
