Total Time: 30 minutes + drying time

Yield: 1 banner


  • assorted acrylic paints
  • cardboard
  • paper
  • scissors
  • star stickers
  • ribbon
  • tempera paint sticks
  • tape/glue


  1. Cut triangle pieces from the paper. (This will be the Christmas trees.)
  2. Christmas Tree Banner - paper triangle trees
  3. Using a scrap piece of cardboard - pour some assorted acrylic paints together.
  4. Christmas Tree Banner - various colors of paint on a scrap of cardboard
  5. Now dip the triangles into the paint. Set aside.
