I share another tutorial on how to make a DIY cardboard Christmas tree. Even if you’ve already got a beautiful evergreen decorated with glowing Christmas lights, you can make one of these to create some new memories with your family. This tutorial is also for teachers who want to have a simple tree to use year after year in their classrooms, or for those who live in an apartment and want to be spared of lugging an evergreen up three flights of stairs!

If you would like to see my original post, you can check it out on Hometown Betty. Please note this tutorial is for personal use only, not for commercial use or for resale.

3 large pieces of 40″x48″ cardboard (free at your local Costco)
X-ACTO knife
green craft paint
paint brush/foam brush
T-bar or long straight edge
pencil/pen/black marker

Step 1: Create centerline down cardboard.

Measure to find the top center of cardboard. Mark a long line from top center to bottom left corner of cardboard. Mark another long line from top center to bottom right corner of cardboard.
