Free Christmas Ornament Coloring Page

Free-Christmas-Ornament-Coloring-Page-Artzy Creations

  Lately, I’ve really gotten into creating coloring pages.  I’ve been an art teacher now for over eighteen years and have always loved drawing.  Both of my daughters have a great love for drawing too.  Sometimes, when I couldn’t find just the right coloring pages for the girls, I would create my own for them.  So, this Free Christmas Ornament Coloring Page was actually a special request by my oldest daughter who wanted some pretty ornaments to color in. Now, I’m sharing it with all of you!  If you haven’t tried coloring a coloring page in awhile, (which I admit, I hadn’t done in a long time before I started creating these), you’re in for a real treat.  Coloring pages are actually very relaxing and give your busy mind a chance to unwind just a little bit.  So, why not give it shot and see what you think!

 Free-Christmas-Ornament-Coloring-Page-01-Artzy Creations   This is a great coloring page to keep the kiddos occupied over the upcoming Holiday break.  Use crayons, colored pencils or markers… take your pick.  You and your kids will love it! Free-Christmas-Ornament-Coloring-Page-02-Artzy Creations

Don’t forget to print a page off for yourself and sit down with a nice cup of coffee or tea.  Or join your kids and make it a fun family activity where you all spend some time together, coloring.

Until then, you can follow me for more craftiness fun at Artzy Creations or on FacebookInstagramPinterest,Twitter, and Google +.

I’m sure you’ve noticed lately with all of the free coloring pages that I’m hooked on not only creating coloring pages, but coloring them as well.  Ever since high school, I have always had a passion for art and coloring.  O.k. even before then.  But, I really didn’t take it seriously until I was in high school.  Prior to High School, I used whatever type of art supply I could get my hands on.  The quality didn’t matter at the time because I didn’t know any better.  Well, that all changed when my High School art teacher,  introduced me to Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils.  If you haven’t tried Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils or Premier Markers, you’re in for a real treat.    The difference between Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils and any other old ordinary colored pencil are simply night and day.  Once you try coloring with a Prismacolor  Premier Colored Pencil… it’s just like butter!  I mean when it comes to the smoothness of the pencil moving across the paper, there’s nothing out there that even compares.  The  high quality of the Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils really  allow me to achieve a lot of depth, even in my simple coloring pages.

Prismacolor colored pencils also come in a HUGE variety of colors too.  I just stocked up on some more Prismacolor  Primier Colored Pencils at Michaels the other day. (There’s never too many colored pencils in my house, just ask my daughters).  Both of my  daughter’s love to use them too,  because even at their young ages, they both notice the difference in  the vibrancy and how much easier they are to use when coloring.

If you haven’t tried a coloring page yet or you’re like myself and really hadn’t done any coloring/drawing since high school, download my Winter Coloring Page , and give it a try…

Just like my cup of hot chocolate says, you might just find yourself in…

Well, with Winter here and the snow and cold weather in full effect,  most Moms are looking for different ways to keep their kids occupied while they are indoors. As an art teacher to kids of ALL ages, I can speak first hand to how a new box of Prismacolor colored pencils and a few good coloring pages can really brighten up a cold and dreary day.

 If you have a young budding artist and are looking for the perfect gift, Why not give them something that they will be “Ticked Pink” over 🙂 and while you’re at it, be sure to check out Michaels coupons for additional savings, in newspapers & online!  Once you get  your new colored pencils, and you’re looking for additional free coloring pages, the Michaels website has quite a few to choose from. Click here and select “free pages” to download more free coloring pages.

Cinnamon Stick Christmas Ornament

You will want to cover your entire Christmas Tree with these darling Cinnamon Stick Christmas Ornaments!

Quick and easy to make, these Cinnamon Stick Christmas Ornaments will add a darling look to your Christmas Tree. They also make for a great attachment on a wrapped present. Oh and neighbor gifts! What a cute gift to give to your neighbors!Merry Christmas! We love visiting Artzy Creations and sharing what we have created with you and today is no exception! Hi! I’m Debbie with Made From Pinterest and today I’m sharing a cute ornament craft.

I love things that are big on easy but also big on impressive and festive at the same time. These Cinnamon Stick Christmas Ornaments really fill that bill. Quick and easy to make and they look so festive on a Christmas tree. And just look how elegant the black and gold ornament is:

Quick and easy to make, these Cinnamon Stick Christmas Ornaments will add a darling look to your Christmas Tree. They also make for a great attachment on a wrapped present. Oh and neighbor gifts! What a cute gift to give to your neighbors!To make some of these for yourself, here is what you will need:

♥Long cinnamon sticks. I bought mine at Costco

♥An assortment of ribbon. It is easier if you choose ribbon that is the same on both sides but you can still make it work with a design on one side like the black and gold ribbon that is shown.

♥Scissors

♥Glue gun and glue

♥Spray starch and an iron

♥Twine for the hanger loop

Start by cutting pieces of ribbon in lengths of 9-10 inches. You will need six for each ornament and a little extra for the ribbon at the top.

Tie 6 pieces of ribbon around your cinnamon stick:

Quick and easy to make, these Cinnamon Stick Christmas Ornaments will add a darling look to your Christmas Tree. They also make for a great attachment on a wrapped present. Oh and neighbor gifts! What a cute gift to give to your neighbors!

At this point, I lightly sprayed my ribbon with spray starch and with my iron set on low, I ironed my ribbon strips to help them be stiff and stand out nicely. If you have any kind of plastic or rubber embellishments on your ribbon, be very careful when ironing so they don’t melt.

Next, with your scissors, start from the end that you want the top and cut down towards the “bottom” of the tree at a diagonal making the ribbon longer at the bottom. This makes it so much easier than tying a tiny little piece of ribbon at the top. Repeat on the other side.

Quick and easy to make, these Cinnamon Stick Christmas Ornaments will add a darling look to your Christmas Tree. They also make for a great attachment on a wrapped present. Oh and neighbor gifts! What a cute gift to give to your neighbors!Cut out the desired length of twine for your hanger. Place a dollop of glue at the “top” of your tree and secure the ends of your twine to the cinnamon stick.

Tie a small bow with the desired color of ribbon and glue over the bottom of the twine pieces to cover.

Wait until glue is cool and dry before hanging on your tree.

Quick and easy to make, these Cinnamon Stick Christmas Ornaments will add a darling look to your Christmas Tree. They also make for a great attachment on a wrapped present. Oh and neighbor gifts! What a cute gift to give to your neighbors!

Minature Hershey’s Kisses Christmas Trees

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of The Hershey Company for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

 photo Minature-Hesheys-Christmas-Trees-Artzy Creations 1_zps3wuccyky.jpg

During the holidays, my family loves to bake all kinds of wonderful treats. I remember as a child, going over to my Grandmother’s and making tons of Christmas cookies. I would also bake cookies with my Mom, and then my sister and I would decorate them. I still to this day, have fond memories of all the different treats that we would make and how much fun it was. I love continuing this tradition with my family. Every Holiday season, we choose a few types of traditional Holiday treats to make, but we also decide to try a new recipe. Well this year, we not only decided to try a new Holiday treat recipe, but we actually chose to make our very own!

One of the cookies we always make this time of year is the Peanut Butter Blossoms, because they are my husband’s favorite. When he eats them, the first thing he does is take the chocolate Hershey’s Kisses off the top, eat the cookie and save the Hershey’s Kiss for last. Well, it so happens that my oldest daughter eats hers the same way… because they both love the chocolate so much. Well, this became my inspiration… come up with a new family Holiday Treat that centers itself around delicious chocolate, and the iconic Hershey’s Kisses chocolates.

 photo Minature-Hesheys-Christmas-Trees-Artzy Creations 2_zpslvxmqhzl.jpg

In order to satisfy my chocolate loving family, I decided to go all out with this recipe by incorporating three different types of Hershey’s chocolates. I used Hershey’s Kisses Candy Cane Mint candies, Hershey’s Kisses Milk Chocolate candies in festive foils and Hershey’s Special Dark Chocolate Chips!

 photo Minature-Hesheys-Christmas-Trees-Artzy Creations 3_zpsmitro9a6.jpg

I call my treats the…

Miniature Hershey’s Kisses Christmas Trees

Ingredients:

  • Hershey’s KissesCandy Cane Mint Candies
  • Hershey’s Kisses Milk Chocolate candies (for melting & dipping)
  • Hershey’s Special Dark Chocolate Chips
  • Paraffin Wax
  • Miniature Sandwich Creme Cookies (they get covered)
  • Cute Little Candy Snowflakes (Optional)

Step 1: Unwrap the Hershey’s Kisses Candy Cane Mint chocolates and set them aside. Keep a close eye on these… if you have little kid (or husband) helpers like I did, quite a few of these seem to disappear. Next, unwrap the Hershey’s Kisses Milk Chocolate candies and put them in a heat resistant glass bowl.

Step 2: Put water in a pot and place the heat resistant glass bowl with the Hershey’s Kisses Milk Chocolate candies on top. Add a small amount of paraffin wax to help the chocolate to melt smoothly and not harden a little too quickly. Bring the water to a boil and let the steam heat the bottom of the bowl and melt the chocolate. Be sure to stir frequently with a silicone spatula.

Step 3: Once the chocolate is melted, take a fork and dip your mini-sandwich cookie (one at a time) into the chocolate. Place the chocolate covered cookies onto a baking sheet with wax paper and let them begin to cool. These are the bases for your Christmas Tree treats.

 photo Minature-Hesheys-Christmas-Trees-Artzy Creations 9_zpsxzm0othb.jpg

 photo Minature-Hesheys-Christmas-Trees-Artzy Creations 4_zpssxdbmkfe.jpg

Step 4: Take a chocolate chip and using a butter knife that has been dipped in the hot water, lay it across the chip to flatten and melt the top of it. While the top of the chip is still melted, take it and press it onto the center of the bottom of the Hershey’s Kisses Candy Cane Mint chocolates. Hold for a second until the chips and Kisses are fused together.

This piece is your Tree and it’s little Hershey’s Special Dark Chocolate Chip trunk!

 photo Minature-Hesheys-Christmas-Trees-Artzy Creations 6_zpsu7yo0xbv.jpg

Step 5: Check to make sure your chocolate covered cookies are setting up, but before they completely harden, take the Tree piece and set it onto the base. Then let the pieces cool completely and the chocolate harden. (about 15 min. +/- depending on room temperature)

Step 6- Optional: If you want to add the cute candy snowflakes, dip your butter knife back into the hot water. Take the knife and melt the top of the Hershey’s Kisses Candy Cane Mint chocolates and stick the snowflake on before the chocolate hardens.

They taste absolutely delicious… the only problem is they are almost too CUTE to eat…

Paper Straw Snowflake Ornaments

 Check out this very easy and Paper Straw Snowflake Ornaments that the entire family can make!

Paper-Straw-Snowflake-Ornaments-Artzy Creations 3a

The Holidays are the perfect time to get everyone involved in making festive decorations for the house.  At our house during the holidays, we always have some sort of craft going on whether it be making popcorn garland, decorations for the window, or making more ornaments for the tree, there is always something.  And since my youngest daughter is still pretty young, I try to make the crafts doable for all ages.  These Paper Straw Snowflakes are a great craft for all ages.  What’s best about this craft too, is that is really inexpensive and only takes two straws per snowflake to make them.  Let’s get started and see just how easy these adorable snowflakes are to create.

Paper-Straw-Snowflake-Ornaments-Artzy Creations

Supplies Needed:

  • Variety of Paper Straws
  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue or Low Temp Glue Gun For Kids
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Twine or Ribbon to Hang the Snowflake

 

Step 1:  Taking two straws, cut them both in half.  You will have four straw pieces.

Step 2:  Taking your scissors, cut the ends of the straw just a little bit.  Work your way around the tip of the straw, cutting a little section at a time.

Paper-Straw-Snowflake-Ornaments-Artzy Creations 1a

Step 3: Make an X  with two straws and hot glue them in place.  Slightly squeeze the middle of the straw.  This will flatten the center of the straws a little bit so they will stack and glued easier.

Paper-Straw-Snowflake-Ornaments-Artzy Creations 4

Step 4:  Hot glue another straw vertically down the center of the X that you just made.

Paper-Straw-Snowflake-Ornaments-Artzy Creations 5

Wood Slice Snowmen Ornaments

  Check out this really easy tutorial for Wood Slice Snowmen Ornaments.

Wood-Slice-Snowman-Ornaments-Artzy Creations 4a

I love all things snowmen related.  I just have a thing for them and think they’re the cutest.  Like the old Campbell’s soup commerical where the snowman comes in to have a bowl of soup and he thaws out and melts into a little boy.  Love it!  I was at Target the other day and spotted some wood slice tags in the Dollar Spot at Target and knew these would make for the cutest ornaments. The best part is… I created all 6 of these ornaments for just a dollar.  I already had the paint and ribbon.  But, you wouldn’t have to buy any ribbon, the package of tags already comes with twine.  These also come together in no time and make the perfect homemeade gift to attach to a present, wine bottle, card, etc.

Supplies Needed:

  • Wood Slice Tag From Dollar Spot
  • White, Black, and Orange Paint
  • Paint Brush
  • Ribbon

Wood-Slice-Snowman-Ornaments-Artzy Creations 2

These are the great wood slice tags that I found in the Dollar Spot bins at Target.  It’s such a bargain to get six of these for $1.  I just had to snatch them up.  I think I will have to go back for more.

Wood-Slice-Snowman-Ornaments-Artzy Creations 6

Step 1:  Use white paint to paint the front and backs of the wood slices.  I used chalk paint for this.  I found that it covers things a lot better and wanted to cover up the dark chalkboard circle on the one side.  The chalk paint worked perfectly for this.

Wood-Slice-Snowman-Ornaments-Artzy Creations 3

Step 2:  Use a fine paint brush and paint the nose and eyes onto the slices.  Let them dry.  You can seal these with a matte spray paint or leave as is.

Step 3:  Use the twine that is provided for you or use your own ribbon to make a loop to hang the snowmen by.

Wood-Slice-Snowman-Ornaments-Artzy Creations 5a

Wood-Slice-Snowman-Ornaments-Artzy Creations 1a

Enjoy making these cute little snowmen.  They’re just adorable and so easy.  Now, I’m off to Target to pick up more of the tags.  I hope they still have them.
