I love seeing fun new ideas for Christmas activities for kids. And my kids love to decorate our house for the holidays. So when I saw an idea for a sticky wall Christmas tree at No Time for Flashcards, I knew we had to make our own. I thought a sticky wall Christmas tree would be a wonderful way for my kids to have some fun while adding their own decorating flair to our home at the same time.
My mom – the kids’ grandmum – helped get the sticky wall tree set up for the kids. Using green tissue paper, she cut out the shape of a tree. Next, she laid the tissue paper tree on the back of a roll of contact paper in order to trace the tree shape onto the contact paper. Then, she cut the contact paper into a tree shape as well.
Once she had the tissue paper and contact paper trees, she used painter’s tape to first tape the tissue paper tree to the wall. Then she used painter’s tape to tape the contact paper tree to the wall right over the tissue paper tree. The contact paper was put up with the sticky side facing out.
I think it’s a beautiful addition to our holiday decor! And my kids are so proud because they did it all by themselves.
