A few nights ago I quickly made these 3 cute pictures with my girls (2 5 yr olds & a 6 yr old). The following morning they trundled off to school with them so they could be sent off and turned into Christmas cards as a fund-raising venture.
These are classic Christmas pictures that you’ll be able to find examples of all over the web. Adding different materials and texture adds character and makes them a little bit more individual
I cut up all the bits of felt and pipe cleaner before hand and the girls then had to stick it all together how they wanted. The hardest part was not being able to use any glitter (I like a bit of sparkle) but the machines that make the cards don’t like it. Once we get the cards and artwork back I think we’ll maybe add that missing shine.
They are easy to make and I think the results are brilliant.
Cut a small potato in half dip it in brown paint to make the reindeer heads. You could draw feet underneath the heads or use a slightly larger potato half to add a body.
Uses : A4 Coloured card, glue, white, blue, red, pink and black paint. Assorted decorations
Now it’s time to go make some yourself. Feel free to post a link to any Christmas pictures you have made in the comments section. You could also scan/photograph the pictures you make and print some postcard sized copies to send to family?
