♫ Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree, this fork painted Christmas tree craft is looooovely!! ♫
We love playing around with different painting methods., especially ones where we get to paint without brushes. If you have a disposable fork and some paint, you can make this pretty project today. This technique is fun, easy and perfect for painting Christmas trees or winter tree landscapes. What you will need:
Acrylic paint or Tempura
Watercolor paper or thicker stock paper
Squeeze green paint onto a paper plate. I like to use a few different shades of green for a little extra depth to the painting. Dip the fork into the paint. There are a few different ways that you can do this. You can press and stamp or drag the fork flat across the paper or another option is to paint a Christmas tree shape and then scrape off the paint. Be sure to make your strokes shorter at the top and longer at the bottom.
Here is the first Christmas tree that we created. We painted on a simple trunk and a star. Let the paint dry before adding ornaments to the top. You can paint on ornaments or use buttons or small pom poms.
We added another layer of branches to our second tree.
Use a round paint brush and/or Q-tips to add Christmas lights and ornaments to your tree.
My 5 year old liked this one and couldn’t wait to try it. She preferred the dragging method and dragged the paint and her tree branches into place.
She did a beautiful job on her tree and could not wait to finish it off and paint on her ornaments.
