watercolor resist paper christmas stocking

This project is intended for ages 4+. These cute stockings are fun to make with watercolors and crayons. Add a personal touch and hang them up to decorate.
Step 1

Draw a stocking on a piece of watercolor paper. Cut it out. Trace the same shape onto another piece of watercolor paper and cut out. Cut a strip of paper for the hanger.

Step 2

Draw designs on the stocking with a white crayon.
TIP: The harder you press your crayon into the watercolor paper the more noticeable the resist will be when watercolor is added.

Step 3

Paint the stocking with watercolor. Watch the white crayon show through; then let it dry.

Step 4

Now, add your name and some pom-poms for a personal touch.

Step 5

Fold the strip of paper and glue it to the stocking as a hanger.

Step 6

Glue the two stockings together, but leave the top edge open, to make the pouch.
TIP: ADULT: Use hot glue when attaching the stockings together for the strongest hold.
