Upcycled Place Mat Christmas Tree
Plastic Place mat (Christmas themed)
battery operated or solar Christmas lights
Craft glue or clear tape.
This quick Christmas craft project shows you how to make a fun lighted Christmas tree using dollar store placemats and battery lights.
The Christmas tree is simple enough to use as a kids Christmas Craft project for classrooms or sunday school activities and lesson plans.
Start by chosing a place mat that is thin enough to let the lights shine through.
Inexpensive plastic mats are perfect for this.
Fold into a cone and secure with tape and cut off any excess at the bottom.
Simply pop the lights inside, secure with sticky tape if you would like them evenly spaced inside.
To avoid any fire hazards I reccomend turning this off when not under supervision just to be safe.
