A hanging Christmas tree made from a piece of cardboard cut in a spiral.Every year is unique and so every year we tend to change Christmas trees. Having a kid at home inspires us to create new things especially on some occasions like Christmas.



  • 1 big round piece of cardboard
  • pencil or marker
  • scissors and cutter
  • crepe paper (optional)
  • yarn or ribbons
  • Christmas balls
  • series lights
  • other Christmas accessories


  1. Place cardboard onto a flat surface and draw circles inside of decreasing sizes.

  13. Decorate with other accessories and don't forget to put up the series lights.
