‘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
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.
