Dear Debbie: Is there any idea to do the Christmas handmade project with the kids?
I love the spirit of getting them into making or personalizing gifts.
Frannie kids love projects, especially when working and playing with mom and dad.
This is a great way to share your time with your child and the result may surprise you --
Do you know they are art?
There are a lot of ideas, but let's start with designing the wrapping paper.
You do need oil for this recipe.
Therefore, care must be taken when dealing with toxic paint thinners.
You need a pan large enough to lay out the paper you are decorating (A plastic kitten
Pan works well).
Start making gel.
In a pan, dissolve 1 1/2 cup of corn starch in 1 1/2 cup of cold water.
Add 3 glasses of water to keep boiling, stirring and stirring.
When the pan is boiled, remove the pan from the fire and pour the contents into the pan.
Let it sit down until it cools and becomes a thick gel for about 15 or 20 minutes.
Mix the artist's paint with paint thinners so that they become very easy to runny nose.
Apply the first paint color in large quantities to the artist's brush, then tap and splash the paint onto the gel surface with a mixing stick.
Add any number of colors.
Use the Wood End of the brush to mix colors to make the design.
Lay the paper flat on the surface and make sure all the paper is exposed to the paint.
Lift the paper carefully and bring it to the sink.
Rinse the gel off the paper.
The paint will stick together because it is oil.
Hang the paper and dry it overnight.
Iron plates with low heat settings.
This makes the beautiful again
The wrapping paper available, or the shape of the tree can be cut out.
Children always bring art home from school.
While it is not possible to keep each piece, there is an alternative here to attach them to the refrigerator.
Make a colorful indoor drying line for hanging pictures.
The cut length of a rope about 4 feet long.
Color the rope by dipping it in the water
Based on paint, squeeze out to dry.
Paint the wooden clothes nails and decorate them with dots or sparks.
Hang the rope on the wall, the best height for the kids to reach, and clip their artwork on the wall with nails.
In this way, they can manage their own monitors.
There are a lot of unpainted wooden items in the crafts store and the dollar store, including frames, little bird houses, boxes, letters, numbers and decorations.
Why not try some creative decorations to decorate these pieces?
Paper-cut simplified is the cutting and pasting of art.
Bugs, birds, or geometry, for example.
Find the small picture and cut it to fit the frame.
On a dry, painted frame, paste the picture with the glue removed.
Apply three layers of acrylic varnish, seal the picture and finish the frame.
