It’s Christmas Craft time!
I love crafts and I love Christmas.
Last year we did a craft for Christmas, we made something similar to the swirly painted ornaments. While they were fun to make, it was more of a hassle trying to get both of the kids not to get paint all over themselves and all over the table, wall, etc.
This year I opted for what I thought would be an easier craft for them. Turns out I was wrong. But alas, here it is.
Gather your supplies.
metallic acrylic paint
glitter puffy paint
Start off by painting the canvas with your base color. It can be any color you want it to be, but just make sure your base color and your metallic paint are contrasting colors.

Let them dry.
Next grab your stickers and slap them on your dried canvas. We went with Christmas sayings.
Grab your metallic acrylic paint and paint all over with it.
Squiggle some puffy paint on top.
I suggest letting this dry completely before taking the stickers off.
Remove stickers and admire your work!
