This project is a fun one for everyone, just be sure to do it in a place that is easy to wipe down, the paint does splatter. The best part about this art project is that as you smack the needles into the paper the aroma of evergreens fills the air! A multi-sensory project for sure. 1. Gather your materials. You will need a small switch of pine tree. Any type will do, some red and green paint and paper of your choice. 2. Dip your needles in the paint. 3. Start painting! If you want you can cut the final paper once it's dry into a fun Christmas shape like a tree, wreath or bell!
