This is such a cute and simple craft! You are going to want to try this DIY and you probably already have most of the items you will need in your own home. Depending on the size of paintbrush you purchase these can be used as door hangers, tree ornaments, or gift tags. It is also easy to write on the back for keepsake memories.

Making this cute holiday craft was effortless. We made these last year and they were so fun for our son to hand out to teachers and friends last Christmas. Now that he is older, I’m excited to give our Santa Brush craft another try because I know he could help. There are many alterations to this cute little DIY for the holiday, so if you give it a try share your pictures!
