Paint with a Christmas Tree

Here is a silly craft that is fun for the little ones to do . Use the extra trimming from your Christmas tree as a paint brush.


You will need : Small tree branches, paper, paint, scissors and glue.
Draw a simple tree on a piece of paper.






Let the kids use the small pieces of the tree like a paint brush.










Allow the paint to dry.
Glue on a paper star and ornaments.

Getting the fake christmas tree branch off of my tree will be tricky, but I'm up for it :)

Just kidding, we have a pine tree right outside that will do the trick.

Thanks for sharing!

We are definitely doing this one. I don't have a tree yet but I think a branch from the backyard fir tree will do. :)

You have the ability to take just about anything and make it an art project. We should create some sort of challenge to give you the most outrageous and random things and see what kind of crafts you come up with.
