DIY Easy Watercolor Christmas Cards

This a craft tutorial sponsored by Creativebug.

I have always loved watercolor even more since I attended Michael’s summit and we were able to take a small class on watercolor through Creative Bug.

The other day, we took a class on how to make Watercolor Chritmas cards and it inspired us to create our own little Christmas card to share with our friends this Holiday season, hand made by our little inspiration, Aries.

To make your own Watercolr Christmas Cards you will need the following:

  • Foiled Blank Christmas cards. ( We found these cards on Michael’s for just $1 for a set of 6 with envelopes and they were perfect for this project).
  • Watercolor Paints
  • Watercolor Brushes
  • Small 4 x 4 Pictures

For this project, I let my 5 year old do all the work but we first took the Creative Bug Watercolor Christmas Cards class. Aries absolutely loved taking the little class, she insisted on taking the class twice.

We used some of the Watercolor Christmas Cards class tips to re-create our own cards using pre-made cardstock Christmas Cards. Using our favorite watercolor colors, Aries brushed and brushed over the Christmas card. Let dry. Using double tape, tape the photo and write a meaningful message on your card.

Creative is surely an inspiration for all crafters and those who love would like to learn to craft. It is also so fun, to take the  classes with your little ones. Aries constantly asks to take classes on Creativebug.
