I may have mentioned it a time or six, but I made my Christmas gifts this year. I’m sure my family’s collective “great!” was really more like “great“. But still, I enjoyed it so much and knew I had done something good for myself when I went to the mall a couple weeks before Christmas and dodged marketing bullets right and left. I even imposed my gift making on my kids in the form of, “you are going to make presents for the grandparents and by God, they will look like you are a baby Picasso.” It’s possible that they fell short of Picasso.
Now that the holidays are over, you may be tapped out of creative gift ideas, and well, cash. Here is a gift worthy project that your kids can do that has a lot of possibilities.
- Something to paint on. We did canvas bags for the grandmothers and grill aprons for the grandfathers.
- Acrylic or fabric paint and brushes
- Double sided tape
- Letter or shape templates
Step 3: Let dry then remove the template.
This would also be really cute as a monogram project, there are so many possibilities!
