Thanks to Colleen of Sugar Aunts for this wonderful tutorial for a bookmark your kids can make. These are fun to do and make great DIY gifts!
Kids love to create handmade gifts for friends and relatives! This Christmas tree bookmark craft is a fun and easy craft idea that kids can make. And the best news is, that they can create a bunch of these at once. Everyone will love to receive these DIY gifts this Christmas!
This craft is super easy to make. You’ll need a sheet of burlap and green paint. Cut the burlap into strips. Next, cut the burlap into bookmark sized strips. Older kids can do this part, or an adult can do the cutting.
To make the Christmas tree shape, fold the burlap strip in half and snip a triangle near the top of the bookmark. Snip a second and third triangle so you have a string of triangles. When you flatten out the bookmark, you’ll have a tree shape. You can snip a small trunk, too.
Have the kids paint the burlap, evenly covering the burlap. When the paint dries, turn the burlap over and paint the other side. Allow the paint to dry again. You can make a bunch of these bookmarks by painting a sheet of burlap and then cutting them into strips. Cut the tree shape out after the burlap has been painted if you are making several bookmarks.
Pair this bookmark with a favorite book for a gift that anyone will love to receive!
