10 Craft Ideas To Do With Mistletoe Coloring Pages
Here are 10 affordable, fun, and creative craft ideas you can do with your completed coloring page!
To make earrings, you will need shrink sheets, access to an oven, earring hardware, and pliers.
You’re going to print off the mistletoe you like onto the shrink sheets, and you’re going to do it twice. Color both mistletoes in with marker and cut them out.
You’ll then punch a hole from which you want the earring to hang. Bake off the mistletoe cut-outs and let cool completely.
Once they’re cooled, you can add the jewelry hardware you choose, whether it’s dangly hooks or back posts.
9. Egg Carton Mistletoe
This little craft is excellent for younger grade-schoolers who are still perfecting their eye-hand coordination.
You’ll need an egg carton with the egg divots cut out individually.
You’re going to have the kids paint the divots red.
Then they will color in the mistletoe page – pick one where the berries are prominent.
Next, they’ll glue the egg divots onto the berries, creating a 3D effect. You can top it off with a red ribbon glued on, too!
To make suncatchers, you’ll need transparency sheets – which you can purchase in an office supply store or online at Amazon.
Then you’re to print off the mistletoe pictures you want and cut out the mistletoe.
Next, you and your kids will take tissue paper and cut it down to fit inside the lines – green for the leaves, red for the berries, etc.
You’ll then poke two holes at the top of the cut-out and tie off a loop of string. You’ll use that to hang the suncatchers from a suction cup hook in a sunny window.
7. Window Clings
You can make some beautiful window clings using my mistletoe pages and puffy paint!
In fact, if you’re up for it, I highly recommend trying your hand at one of the more ornate pages, like the Mistletoe Mandala or Mistletoe Christmas Wreath.
You’ll print off the design you want and follow along the lines with puffy paint.
You can use many different colors or keep it simple and only use two or three.
Either way, you’ll let the puffy paint dry completely, which could take up to two days.
Once the paint is dry, you can peel it off the page and stick it onto your window.
The simpler designs are great for kids, too!
6. Greeting Cards
Consider pulling an illustration from my mistletoe collection for a nondenominational holiday card that is as beautiful as it is easy to create.
You can copy/paste the illustration onto a word document and play around with how you want it to print – half page, quarter page.
Then you or your kids can color it in and add a message on the inside.
5. Party Decorations
For your holiday party, whether it’s at home or in the office, mistletoe strikes just that right note between fancy and fun.
Color it in and cut it out, hang it over doorways, or use it as place settings, food labels, or just wall décor.
4. Glittery Pom Pom Mistletoe
For a fun craft to create memories and works of art, get your kids to color in some mistletoe pages and then jazz up the illustrations with craft supplies.
Have them add red pom poms where the berries are and outline the mistletoe leaves with green glitter glue.
Or if you don’t have glitter glue, you can make your own – they’ll just outline the leaves with glue and then sprinkle glitter on to coat.
3. 3D Multicolor Mistletoe
This craft is for older kids and adults with the eye-hand coordination necessary to complete it.
You’ll pick a mistletoe illustration that features the plant prominently and then cut out dozens of little leaf-shaped tabs in different shades of green construction paper.
Once you have enough, you will glue the tabs onto the image where the leaves are; for the berries, you can use red pom poms, or little wooden balls painted red.
If there’s a ribbon on the image, you can also make a bow with some red or green ribbon and glue it onto place.
2. Gift Tags
To make gift tags, you’re going to copy/paste the illustrations from PDFs to a word document, then shrink the pictures to five or six inches.
Next, you can add the “To:” and “From:” text on your computer or handwrite it once it’s printed off.
Print the page with the gift tags, color them in and cut them out along the rectangular border.
Poke holes through the tops, string ribbon through, and tie it off with a bow.
My mistletoe illustrations would make beautiful Christmas tree ornaments – especially perfect for smaller, individual trees!
You’ll need shrink sheets; you’ll print off the illustration you want and have your kids color in the mistletoe with markers and cut it out.
Before you bake it off, you’ll also punch a hole where you want the ribbon to go (and the ornament to hang from).
Then bake per the directions on your shrink sheets and let cool.
Then you can poke ribbon through the holes you made and tie it off into a bow (alternately, you could use twine or metallic cording).
These ornaments also made great keepsake gifts for family members!
