Footprint Christmas Tree art for kids

My toddler is too young to paint his own foot so the elder brother helped him with it. Make sure to have a damp cloth nearby so you can wipe the paint off your little kid’s foot or you’ll have a lot of mess to clean up later.

I helped to stamp his painted foot on a piece of paper and wipe clean his foot.

The elder brother proceeded to paint the other foot.

And I helped to stamp it next to the previous footprint.

The elder brother completed the artwork by painting a star at the top and some dots as the Christmas tree ornaments while the little boy played with the paintbrush.

We were privileged to be invited to dine at The Speakeasy Restaurant and Bar yesterday. The food is awesome but what caught my eyes the moment we were seated is their glow lights! I was at awe with their decor. It is all hand-made and I am telling you, this is really awesome! I finally found someone who loves craft as much as I do!

Just place a tea light candle in an empty bottle.

Stick a tape along creep paper and turn it inside out.

Place the creep paper over the bottle and there – a beautiful soft glow to illuminate the night.

I am truly amazed at Soraya’s creativity. This is only ONE out of her many craft work that I found that night. Shall share more with you as we countdown to Christmas! πŸ˜€

Christmas is just around the corner. Decorating for Christmas can be fun but often burns a big hole in our pocket. Let’s not burn our pockets any further and DIY our very own ornaments instead.

DIYΒ Silver Bird Christmas Tree Ornament.

I drew the bird template on a drawing block. We recycled the hardboard that comes on the back of every drawing block.


We used that hard board to make the bird. I got the kids to use the template to draw the outline on the hard board and cut for them. The older kids cut out their own bird.

Get them to paint the bird using silver poster colour.

I cut silver paper and fold them accordion style. Read here if you don’t know what is accordion fold.

Use the folded paper as a guide to how long you’ll need to cut a slit on the bird.

Slip the paper through and spread open the wings.

Poke a tiny hole for the thread and the Silver Bird Christmas Tree Ornament is done! πŸ™‚

Glue the hands and feet to the bowl. Tie a golden ribbon around the neck and your guest will never know that the bowl and bear are made up of cheap stuff πŸ˜€
