Make Easy Crepe Paper Crafts

Our Tree is Just One of Many Crepe Paper Crafts!

Crepe Paper Crafts

We combined ideas for Nature and Crepe Paper Crafts to come up with this festive tree! And you'll never guess what we used as our base....Give up? Well, it all started with half a toilet roll and an empty cereal box. The rest is history! Perfect for a Christmas decoration or in honor of Earth Day! Our tree craft is one you'll want to make right away!

Ready to start crafting? Let's take a look at what you'll need:


  • One toilet roll
  • An empty cereal box
  • Glue
  • Brown tempera paint and some paint brushes
  • Colored crepe paper
  • Scissors
  • Glitter


1. Look at our photo for reference.

2. Cut out a triangle from the cereal box. You'll decide how big or small you want to make your tree.

3. Cut strips of green crepe paper and glue to the triangle.

4. Crumple small bits of crepe paper into ball shapes and glue to the "tree".

5. Spread thin stripes of glue on the tree and sprinkle glitter onto the glue. Let dry.

6. Cut out a star shape from the cereal box. Spread glue on one side and sprinkle gold glitter on the glue. Let dry.

7. In the meantime, cut a toilet roll in half and paint brown (this is your tree trunk). Let dry.

8. Cut two slits down the side of the toilet roll and on the bottom of the tree. Slip the tree onto the toilet roll.

That's it! You're just completed your first craft! Do you have any of your own ideas for free paper crafts? If you do...share them with us!
