Christmas Tree DIY Craft Card

Tree print

There’s still time to get your Christmas wishes in! If sending store-bought card seems somewhat impersonal, a hand-crafted one is an option for even the novice artist (kids included!). If you’re looking for a simple DIY answer to your Christmas card quandaries, this cotton swab paint print card is perfect for beginners. You can also trim down the card, making festive holiday gift tags too!

Materials:

  • 8×10-inch card stock paper (use white or a light-colored hue)
  • Green tempera paint
  • A few more colors of tempera (for the ornaments)
  • Cotton swabs
  • Scissors

Instructions:

  1. Fold the card stock in half, from top to bottom (positioning it vertically).
  2. Cut the paper in half.
  3. Fold each half into a tent shape, making two cards per piece of paper. You can cut these in half if you want to make smaller gift tags.
  4. Dip the end of a cotton swab into the green paint. Press and print a triangle tree shape onto the center of the paper. Start at the bottom, making each row have progressively less dots (if your child is crafting the card, ask her to count the paint dabs to add in a math activity).
  5. Repeat the dibbing and dabbing printing process to add a few ornaments (each ornament is a different colored dot on the tree) and a gold star at the top.
