Nothing is more satisfying for me than using ordinary household items and a few inexpensive craft supplies to created fun and whimsical Christmas decorations. This trio of Paintbrush Christmas Ornaments all started out their lives as a simple Dollar Store paintbrush!
Each of the ornaments is easy to make and can be done in just a few hours. (Most of that time is just waiting for the paint to dry!) These Paintbrush Christmas Ornaments feature three of the most popular Christmas figures – Santa Claus, a Snowman and, of course, the Grinch who stole Christmas. The ornaments are so cute and your kids would love to join in making them!
To do the projects you will need:
- Dollar store paint brushes with a 2″ head
- Small Paintbrushesfor Painting
- Acrylic craft paints
- Pom poms, polyester batting, Snowflake stickers and Felt.
- Christmas Ribbons for hanging
It’s time to meet the Trio of Paintbrush Christmas Ornaments!
This adorable Santa Claus ornament has the cutest whiskers and a festive hat made from polyester batting and a slim green ribbon. He will be Jingling all the way this holiday season! See the tutorial for him here.
Mr. Snowman is all bundled up for the cold. One of my daughters childhood gloves ended up being used for the collar! I love the way the light colored paint brush bristles look on his body. See the Snowman tutorial here.
No Christmas would be complete without a visit from the Grinch who is trying to steal Christmas! Never fear…he won’t win. The residents of Whoville will make sure of that. Get the Grinch tutorial here.
All three of these ornaments ended up costing me a grand total of about $5. They will look so cute on our Christmas tree, and would also add a fun wall hanging, too!
