Fern Tree Decoration

With just a little holiday magic, kids can turn houseplants into grand trees on cards and gift tags.


  • Fern
  • Card stock (or construction paper)
  • White glue
  • Paper towel
  • Sequins


  1. Step 1

    Snip the tip off a fern (it doesn't harm the plant).

  2. Step 2

    Attach to card stock or construction paper with white glue.

  3. Step 3

    Cover with paper towel, weight down, and let dry for one day.

  4. Step 4

    Trim the tiny tannenbaums with cut-out stars and sequins.
