The Steps for How to Make the Easy Christmas Crafts: Construction Paper Triangles Christmas Tree:

Print the Easy Christmas Crafts Construction Paper Triangles Christmas Tree pattern. Cut around the pattern shapes - the triangle and the star size you prefer. We used the largest star shape.

Cut six green triangles, one brown triangle and one yellow star. 

If you want to make a larger tree, make larger equilateral triangles. You can find larger star patterns on our Easy Paper Crafts Five Point Star page.

Using the dotted line on the pattern as a guide, cut across the brown triangle to form the base of the tree.

Position the shapes into the Easy Christmas Crafts Construction Paper Triangles Christmas Tree shape with the star at the top and the brown base at the bottom.

With the hole punch, make holes in each of the pieces. Four of the green triangles have holes in each point. Two of the green triangles have holes in only two points. The brown base has holes in the points of the longest edge. For the star, place a hole near one of the inner points.

Begin at the bottom of the tree. Place the brown base over two overlapping green triangles. Thread the yarn through the two green pieces and the one brown piece. Tie a loose knit in the yarn. Continue with the second set of holes in the bottom of the tree.

Overlap the remaining triangles in the tree, and tie loose knots in the yarn. 

Notice the top of the middle triangle in the bottom row has two yarns. One yarn is tied on the left and one on the right. The two yarns keep that triangle centered.
