We’ve teamed up with The Mad House to join in the Kid Made Christmas Card Series and after rummaging through the craft box and working out just what we could sprinkle with ‘THE’ most glitter we came up with this super cute and easy Christmas card with little detachable star Christmas tree ornament.
It’s a really easy Christmas card to make, so it’s suitable for making with really young children, you’ll just need to help them out a little with the scissors.
What you need to make the Christmas card
- black, blue and white paint
- cardboard to make your card – scrap cardboard or proper greetings card making card are fine.
- cardboard for the star
- glitter – blue and silver
- star shape stencil (you could use a gift tag or cookie cutter to draw around)
- silver paper or tinfoil
Christmas card instructions
- Firstly fold the card in half to form your Christmas card
- Next mix up a dark blue coloured paint using the blue and black – you’re aiming for a night sky type of a colour. Then paint the card front and sprinkle with glitter whilst the paint is still wet.
- Then draw around the star shape on the piece of card and cut it out, make a small hole for the ribbon at the top. Paint the star white and whilst it’s still wet sprinkle on the glitter.
- Once the star has dried stick on a little silver face with eyes and mouth.
- Next thread ribbon through the top of the star and tie in a loop (this will hang the star onto the tree)
- Help your little one to write a little Christmassy message on the back of the star.
- Then cut a slit in the top of the card and slot the ribbon in, this just holds the sparkly star in place on the Christmas card.
