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.

8×10 canvas

metallic acrylic paint

acrylic paint

glitter puffy paint


paint brushes

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.

Next grab your stickers and slap them on your dried canvas. We went with Christmas sayings.
