- A pair of scissors
- Pistachio and peanut shells
- Clay doughs
- A black sketch pen
- Liquid glue
Step 1: Starting With The Sheets Of Paper
Take a blue sheet of paper and cut a big circle out of it. Now, taking a white sheet of paper, cut a circle sharing the size with the previous one, and then cut two-quarter of the circular sheet leaving just a quarter behind. Finally, cut the top of this quarter sheet in the shape of small cloud linings and paste it at the bottom of the blue sheet. See the picture below for reference.
Step 2: Painting The Pistachio Shells
Take thirty-five pistachio shells and paint nineteen in color green and the rest in color blue. Now, paste two green shells next to each other on the top section of the blue sheet as shown in the picture below.
Step 3: Pasting The Pistachio Shells
Paste one more green shell right in the middle of the green shells that you just pasted. Now, paste four more blue shells next to each other below these green shells. Finally, paste six green shells in a similar fashion below the blue shells that you just pasted as shown in the picture below.
Step 4: Pasting The Rest Of The Shells
Paste nine more blue shells next to each other below the green shells that you pasted in the previous step. Then, eight green shells were on top of the shells in the middle. Now, three blue shells in between the shells that you just pasted. Finally, paste two green shells on top of the shells pasted at the bottom left side as shown in the picture below. The shells now resemble the shape of a Christmas tree.
Step 5: Working On The Clay Dough
Take a yellow clay dough and mold it into a small star. Now, paste the star at the top of the tree. See the picture below for reference.
Step 6: Make The Tree Trunk
Take a brown sheet of paper and cut a strip out of it. Now paste the strip below the tree right in the middle. See the picture below for reference. This shall serve as the trunk of the tree and with this we have completed the process of making the Christmas tree.
Step 7: Working On The Peanut Shells
Take two big peanut shells and paint them red. Now, paste the first shell a little above the white pasted sheet, horizontally. Finally, paste the other shell vertically, a little above the shell that you just pasted. See the picture below for reference.
Step 8: Painting The Shell
Take some white paint and paint a tiny circle on the left side of the vertically placed shell. Now, make two small dots on the right side of the same shell using a black sketch pen. See the picture below for reference.
Step 9: Make Some More Drawings
Using the same sketch pen, some reindeer horns on the sheet above this vertically placed peanut shell. Now, connect the two shells with a line and draw four legs below the horizontally placed peanut. See the picture below for reference. This figure shall serve as a reindeer in this scenery.
Step 10: Moulding Some More Clay
Take some yellow, blue, red, green, and white clay and cut little amounts out, press them on the entire sheet giving them the appearance of tiny dots. See the picture below for reference.
Finally, Adding Some More Details To The Reindeer
Using a black sketch pen, draw a tail at the back of the reindeer, and using a white sketch pen, add some lashes to its eyes. See the picture below for reference.
