Christmas Tree Branch Painting

branch painting

Hey there, well I’ve got a fun little craft idea for you today! Painting is fun as it is, but I had an idea of “spicing” up the good old paint brush with something unique! And thus, a Christmas tree branch! My kids (2 and 4), thought this was a fantastic idea and had a blast doing this craft! At first they gave me a “deer in the headlights” look as if I crazy for handing them a branch to paint with. So I had to explain to them a little bit that we’re having fun and trying something new. They were thrilled!

Painting with something other than a paintbrush creates a new, unique crafting experience and works on many skills too! B
