Ever since we made Halloween Paper Chains and People Paper Chains I've been itching to try out a Christmas version.
(There are tons of gorgeous 3D Paper Christmas Village kits online. But this is such a nice simple art idea for kids of all ages.)
Let's Make a Christmas Paper Chain Village
1. Thicker paper stands up better. So grab some construction paper, drawing paper, watercolor paper, or cardstock. Cut the paper in half so you have two long strips. Then, fold the strips of paper in half a couple of times till you end up with your desired width.
2. Get inspired by the Christmas spirit and cut out shapes like Christmas trees, houses, or cars. (Be sure to leave the side portions connected.)
3. Paint and doodle your designs on.
(I added on tiny Christmas trees to my car chains.)
4. Once you're done, accordion fold your chains.
Now you have your very own miniature Christmas village. These are perfect giving your mantle or kids room a personalized touch.
Happy making, friends!
