To Make the Mono Print Christmas Tree Card You Will Need
- Red card
- Gold stars
- A small amount of white paint
- An old liquid medicine syringe dispenser that has a doughnut shaped end
- A glue stick
- Optional: fine gold, white, or clear glitter
Dip the end of the dispensing syringe into the white paint making sure the whole surface has a thin layer of paint covering it. Also check that a bubble hasn’t formed in the middle of the doughnut and blow gently to pop it if it has. You want a row of five rings on the bottom of the tree so start with the first ring in the middle of that line and work outwards.
Build your ring layer up (if you a have an older child you could talk about triangle numbers and bring some maths into it)until you get your christmas tree shape.
Using the rim of the dispensing syringe roll five small lines to make the bucket that the christmas tree sits in.
Finally use a glue stick to attach a shiny gold star to the top … all done!
If you want to add some sparkle sprinkle glitter on the paint before it dries. I used fine gold glitter on the striped tree pot and very fine white sugar glitter over some of the rings. Don’t use loads as it’s nice to see the white paint show through as well. The fine white sugar glitter looks gorgeous (hard to show in the photo) but definitely adds a touch of Christmas magic!
