Bottle Cap Christmas Craft

We love our Christmas play activities.  We've even put together a 25 Days of Christmas play list of fun activities we've done in the past.  This bottle cap Christmas Tree is fun to make and a cute Christmas craft that kids will love.  And, bonus is that the recycled caps are free!


Christmas Tree craft using recycled bottle caps. This is a fun craft for kids!


Christmas Tree Craft for Kids

This post contains affiliate links.
To make the Christmas Tree craft, you'll need a few items:
bottle caps (green, or use green acrylic paint) You will also need either brown and a yellow bottle cap, or brown and yellow acrylic paint
glue
tiny craft pom poms
marker


Arrange the lids in a tree shape to get an idea of how you want the tree to be on a page.


Use the acrylic paint to paint the tops green.  If you're starting with green bottle caps, you can skip this part.


Dab a small amount of glue on the dried bottle caps.  The crafting poms we used were very small and great for fine motor skills.  A neat pincer grasp is needed to manipulate these itty bitty pom poms.


Glue the bottle caps into place on a piece of card stock or paper.  We drew a star on the top yellow bottle cap.  This is a fun puzzle for the kids, and a very cute craft for kids to create!
