5 Festive paper plate Christmas crafts

This Christmas, we want to bring your children some fun, creative, and easy Christmas craft ideas to make at home or in the nursery.

It’s a good idea to stock up on paper plates during the festive season. They can be used for so many different craft activities! Below, we’ve listed some ideas for Christmas crafts that your little ones can create using a paper plate, with a list of resources from our website to help you.

  1. Snowman
  2. Santa Clause
  3. Collage Bauble
  4. Christmas Tree
  5. Christmas Wreath
  6. Rudolf
  7. Reindeer
  8. Angel

All you have to do, is take your paper plate and cut it to the shape you want, then decorate! You can also add a little hole in the top and thread some string or ribbon through it, to hang up on the door, fridge, or tree.


Things you might need:

  • Pack of paper plates
  • Glue sticks
  • PVA glue
  • Pom poms
  • Paint
  • Paint brushes
  • Sequins
  • Pipe cleaners


You can use your imagine, too, of course. We’d love to see what objects or characters you can create using a paper plate. You can share them with us over on our Instagram @abcschoolsuppliesire, just tag us in your photos!
