Our daughter loves to craft and I enjoy involving her in my Christmas crafting traditions. Growing up we always sent out Christmas cards and I thought it would be fun to create a kid made Christmas card this year. This is great way to involve your children and a fun activity for all. Follow the steps below to create your own watercolor and washi tape Christmas tree card!
Kid Made Christmas Card
To make this craft you will need: greeting cards, watercolor paper, bleeding tissue paper, scissors, glue stick, small spray bottle, pencil and tree shape (download here). See my list of supplies below to purchase! Affiliate links included for your convenience.
First, gather your supplies. Then make your Christmas trees. You may have to make a few watercolor sheets depending on how many cards you want to make. To make the trees spray the watercolor paper (cover completely) then place down bleeding green tissue paper. After all the tissue paper is down, spray again. Let it dry completely and then trace your Christmas tree shapes and cut. Now you have beautiful watercolor trees!
Next, glue down the trees on the greeting cards and decorate with your favorite washi tape. We used 3 different patterns and I think it looks adorable. Lastly, top it off with a watercolor star in yellow. We didn’t add any text to the front of the card, but you can easily add a greeting with marker or print out a greeting and glue. It’s a very easy craft and if your kids are anything like my daughter they will ask to make more.
I hope you enjoyed this craft! If you want to find more fun kid’s activities and Christmas inspiration be sure to follow Heart of Deborah on Pinterest!
