People occasionally ask me what my all time favourite craft on the website is. That’s a really tough question because I have a lot of much loved projects that I’ve done with the girls over the years.
But! If I had to pick one, it would be the Christmas Ornaments made with acrylic paint. I was shocked by how wonderfully such a simple project turned out. It’s more expensive to make than the majority of the crafts on the site, but it makes a really good keepsake/gift from the kids to adults. It’s also a good one to make if you’re doing a “handmade Christmas gift exchange”.
I love the fact that it’s a handmade project that looks good enough for even the fanciest Christmas tree — we especially like making them with the slightly metallic acrylic paints. The first time we made them, the girls were 7 and 3 — they were both able to do their own. When they were in their teens it was still a project they could pull out and do with friends near Christmas.
