‘Up on the House Top’ was one of my favorite Christmas songs growing up. After playing it repeatedly the other day, we were inspired to make a few roof top art projects and a craft.

Here are a couple of mixed media pieces made with simple shapes.

The simple shapes and lines of the mixed media art gave me an idea for a simple craft.

What you will need:

Three jumbo craft sticks

Four regular craft sticks

Red acrylic paint

Black Sharpie

School glue


Construction paper


Glue the three jumbo sticks together to form a triangle roof.  Cut two regular sized craft sticks in half. Use three of the halves of the regular craft sticks to form a chimney for your roof.

Paint the craft sticks red and let them dry.

Once they are completely dry, use a Sharpie to draw brick lines around each stick.

Glue pieces of cotton to the roof top and chimney.

To form the Santa legs, cut about 1/3 off of two regular sized sticks and then paint the 2/3 portion in half black and half red. Cut an oval out of black construction paper and glue to the black end to form boots and glue a strip of cotton to the area where the black and red paint meet. Glue the Santa legs to the back of the chimney. Glue a piece of yarn to the back and let the glue dry completely.

Hang on your tree for a cute homemade ornament.
