Snowy Gift Wrap

Monday, November 26th, 2012

Gather your white paint and children on a cold afternoon and make this cheery holiday gift wrap. It is a fun way to spend a few hours in the afternoon and my children always feel so proud and excited to see stacks of packages wrapped in their own artwork.

Materials: kraft paper (or brown paper bag), snowflake stamp(s), white pigment ink pad, white acrylic paint, paint brush.

Easy peasy instructions:
1. Cut paper to size
2. Draw a horizon line.
3. Use the white paint to fill in the hill under the horizon line.
4. Use the snowflake stamp and pigment ink to create falling snow
5. Let dry and then use it to wrap your gift.

If you are going to use a big sheet for a bunch of smaller gifts, you might consider painting hills all over the paper, so all of the presents will have both hills and snowflakes.

Oh,  and snow forts, snow people, and snowball piles would be great too!
