Easy to make Christmas Tree Bunting

Easy to Make Christmas Tree Bunting

Today we’ve made Christmas Tree Bunting for you.

What you will need:

  • A5 Green Card
  • Scissors
  • Christmas themed stickers
  • String
  • Glitter glue

We used A5 coloured card (A4 folded in half) and folded the card in half. We drew half a Christmas Tree with the plant pot base and cut this out so that the tree was symmetrical on both sides.

We then cut these out. Make as many as you like depending on the space you have to string up the bunting.

Then the fun begins. I let my three year old daughter loose with a selection of Christmas stickers, cut-outs and glitter glue. You could of course be more extravagant and use any crafty bits that you have available.

"Decorated

Once complete and dried we hole punched the tops of the trees and hung them up with string. I think they look quite effective and Isabelle was thrilled.

Handmade Christmas Wrapping Paper

Handmade Christmas Wrapping Paper

Handmade Christmas Wrapping Paper is perfect for making your gift extra special, particularly for Mummy’s, Daddy’s and Grandparents. Using brown paper is also much better for the environment since usual wrapping paper isn’t recyclable.

"Everything

For this you can use either plain brown paper (the type used for packaging) or you can get a roll of white paper from most craft shops.

We cut a good size piece of paper and used bluetak to attach it to table making the job easier.

Using stamps (we found some sponge Christmas stamps in our local craft shop) and red paint. I let Isabelle loose with the stampers and armed with glitter she went to work to create a great piece of Christmas Wrapping Paper.

We have stashed this away to use for Daddy’s Christmas present and will finish it off with some matching red ribbon.

Puffy Paint Snowman Christmas Cards

Puffy Paint Snowman Christmas Cards

Pinterest has been a massive inspiration for lots of things, especially craft ideas to do with my daughter. I’ve created an Christmas Board which you can follow for some great inspiration.

Isabelle loves to make cards for any occasion and they’re much nicer than a bought one.

Whilst browsing recently I found this great idea for Puffy Paint Snowman Christmas Cards.

Shivery Snow Paint Snowman Christmas Cards

What you will need:

  • 1 cup of Shaving cream (we used the cheapest we could find)
  • 1 cup of PVA glue
  • Glitter of your choice
  • Peppermint essence
  • Black Card
  • Orange Card
  • Blank cards and envelopes

How To:

Put the glue in the fridge for a while and then mix the glue and the shaving cream together.

Add in the glitter and peppermint essence (not essential). We used our favourite colours, purple and silver and mix again.

Use the paint mixture to draw a snowman (use lots as this will give you a better effect). Using a bigger brush is easier as a smaller brush left marks on the snowman.

Use glitter and stickers to create your snowman
Get your glitter on!

Cut out a hat shape from the black card and a carrot nose from the orange card. For the eyes  and buttons you could use buttons or cut out the shapes in the card. Alternatively we used little sequins to add some extra colour.
