I kids always give homemade gifts to my family.
We try to keep the cost of Christmas low. And if I was to leave them get something in the €2 shop, it would probably be a cheap piece of tat that will get thrown away.
I love marking a moment in time and a memory of my kids for my parents to look back on and have meaning to it.
When the kids were a little younger we made this canvas for my mother. She loves it so much that it stays out all year long on a shelf in her sitting room. Christmas Reindeer in July?? It works.
It's really easy to do. All you need are some willing kids, a canvas and some paint.
Paint their feet and make reindeer from their footprint. We used their thumbs to make the fairy lights and I used a sharpie to add the finer details.
