Card or Wrapping Paper

Tuesday, December 01, 2015 5:34 AM | Deleted user

This is a great project for making handmade cards or wrapping paper!

Materials Needed:

  • Potatoes
  • Knife (for adults)
  • Paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Glitter
  • Sparkly pipe cleaners
  • Glue
  • Paper (White or craft paper)


    1. Start by cutting your potatoes in half and carving out designs/lines in it. I would look for a potato that is the very round to make it look like a ornament bulb. Have the kids take a paintbrush and paint on Christmas colors.
    2. Have them stamp it on a white piece of paper (or craft paper roll) and sprinkle with glitter.
    3. Take a black marker and draw a small rectangle on top of each ornament shape. Cut short pieces of pipe cleaner and twist it at the bottom to make it look like the string for the ornaments.
