Homemade Christmas Cards

We love making our own cards here in The Mad House, But I do realise that this might not be the same for everyone with children, but I thought I would share with you our favorite Christmas Cards that we have made.

I think that Christmas cards that the children have made are a lovely thing to give, but often they can be messy, difficult, time consuming and complicated to make.  Not these.

Card
Masking tape
Green Paint
Sponges
Glue
Sequins or stars
Glitter
You start by cutting a tree shaped template in a piece of card.  The easiest way to do this is fold it in half.  You can make it as simple or fancy as you like.  I am simple lady myself.
Stick the template on to your card.  I also stick the card down to the table for minimad.
You can either use a sponge or just finger paint in the stencil (sponges are so much easier with small ones)
Watch out it can get messy – Mine wear the art smocks I made from MadDads old work shirts
Allow the cards to dry
Decorate your trees
We used sequins, small stars and glitter

I love makng cards but never had the time or a good excuse to before. Now that I have a 3yo everyone thinks it really cute that we made our own. I love your Christmas tree creations and I bet they are a fraction of the cost of buying commercial ones.
