Christmas Trees Through Window Art

Christmas Tree Through the Window Art Project

This a cute and easy art project that you can display all month long!

This Christmas art project is also a great jumping-off point when talking about perspective.

Directions:

  1. Print out the tree template you wish to use.
  2. Have students color the tree and background. They can create the illusion that they are looking into a room or outside depending on how they color the background. If they want to appear like they are looking inside a room, have them color the background yellow (for light.) If they want to appear like they are looking outside, have them color the background dark blue or black.
  3. Cut out 5 strips of black paper per student. Make the paper 0.5-0.75 inches thick. (I used 0.75 inches thick in my example photos.)
  4. Glue the strips onto the paper like a window frame. Cut off any excess.

That’s it!

You can then have them displayed on a bulletin board or wall all month long.
