DIY Puffy Paint Christmas Craft – SO Fun!
I am always looking for crafts to do with my kids that A) are easy to set up, and B) engaging enough to last longer than 5 minutes! This Christmas craft meets both of those guidelines and has endless possibilities! Plus, this DIY Puffy Paint can be used year-round in your kids' crafting. Today, we're making DIY Puffy Paint Christmas Trees. Here's how we did it:
Supplies for this Christmas Craft
DIY Puffy Paint only requires a few ingredients that you might have on hand! If not, they're easy to put in a Target Drive-Up order and have within a couple of hours.
If you've seen my other craft posts – you know how excited I am to be able to drive up to Target and NOT have to get my kids out of the car to grab just a couple items!)
Here's what you'll need:
- Shaving Foam
- White School Glue
- Washable Paint
- “Ornaments” for the trees like sequins, beads, pom poms, etc.
You can use your creativity for other items to put on your Christmas trees. Some cute ribbon would be great for garland or a star sticker for the top would be great additions.
You can also make other Christmas-related items with your puffy paint using different colors. Ornaments, snowmen, or stockings would all be easy shapes to create and fun to decorate!
How to make Puffy Paint Christmas Trees
The best part about this craft is how easy the prep is! Mix together your school glue, shaving foam, and paint until you get a foamy, puffy consistency. You can make it as fluffy or as thin as you like – it's fun either way! Older kids can participate in the prep because who doesn't love spraying shaving foam?
I used permanent marker to make the tree shapes since I have a preschooler who is still learning to paint within shapes but you can freehand with your paintbrush. We painted on watercolor paper because it is a little sturdier than regular paper but you can use cardboard, craft paper, posterboard, or whatever you have on hand.
Cover the shape of the tree using a lot of the Puffy Paint to make it nice and thick. Add ornaments and voila – a cute and festive Puffy Paint Christmas Tree!
