Handprint Christmas Bunting

Having already sent cards and made tree decorations, I wanted another way to show off display some of Izzy and Clara’s artwork – so I made it into bunting to hang over the fireplace.

What you need:

  • Paint
  • Paint brushes
  • 2 potatoes – one large and one small – halved

*Ok, a lot of patience when your child insists that Reindeers should be green and have ten legs, while you are trying to encourage them to create Pinterest worthy artwork something nice to give their Grandparents.

Colour Run 2014
