Blogmas Day 18

Pinterest Craft for Kids

You might have guessed from the title that my post for Blogmas day 18 is all about Pinterest crafts that kids can do. We’ve had many a Pinterest fail in our time, so to save you the drama, here is a tried and tested idea I found on Pinterest that my 8 year old found fun and simple.

Painted Candle Jar

Not only are these gorgeous, they can be given as gifts. Another bonus, I didn’t need to buy a thing. I dug out old jars and paint from the garage. An old dish sponge gave it the dabbed effect. We even made our own stencils out of a piece of card.

Note: We used a light, gold paint and the design was hard to see, so we used permanent glass markers to outline them. If you use a darker paint this step won’t be necessary.

I recommend that you and your children have a go at this craft. We are giving ours as gifts to grandparents, and I’m sure they’ll be happy to receive them.

Are you giving handmade gifts this year?
