This easy-peasy Christmas tree art project is part of our unique Pop-Art series, where we dive deep into crafts inspired by the Pop Art movement, particularly in Andy Warhol's style.

Pop art is an artistic movement that started in Great Britain during the 50s and became extremely popular in America, thanks to artists like Peter Blake, Roy Lichtenstein, Jasper Johns, and the inspiration behind today's craft, Andy Warhol. 

Warhol became a leading figure in the pop art movement. He created famous artworks with a printing technique that allowed him to make multiple versions of the same image. He used popular objects and cultural references in his work, like soup cans, celebrities, and advertisements.

STEP 2: Colour the Christmas trees

Once your Christmas tree printable start colouring the Christmas trees. You can use any medium, from markers to watercolours to oil pastels... let your creativity run free!

In our example, we have used watercolours. 

Christmas tree to colour

We used a different colour for each tree but gave each a matching brown trunk. 

For each Christmas tree, we began with a deeper shade at the top of the tree and then added more water to our watercolour paints so the colour faded slightly as we got towards the bottom of the tree. 

We then gave our Christmas tree's time to dry before moving onto step 3.

STEP 3:  Colour the background.

Once the Christmas trees are dry, it's time to add the background colour. I recommend using vibrant and contrasting colours to recreate that pop-art-inspired look. Look at the images below for inspiration, but remember you can take this art project in any direction you wish! 

Once complete leave your pop art to dry.

STEP 4: Turn your Christmas tree pop art into a Christmas card

Now it is time to turn your Christmas tree pop art into a Christmas card. Fold your art project in half and if needed take a pair of scissors and trim some of the borders, making sure not to cut off the coloured areas. 

I love the simplicity of this Christmas tree art project, but if you feel like it needs a few extra details you could always use glitter, metallic pens etc to add decorations to the Christmas trees.
