Diamond painting is a form of art in which you place tiny faceted stones onto a coded canvas print in order to make a design that has a 3D look. It is similar to creating a mosaic or paint-by-number in that the print is coded to let you know where to place specific colored diamonds. You do this with wax and an applicator tool.
The process of working on your diamond painting is very calming. And the result is a beautiful piece of art that you can keep for yourself or give to someone as a gift. To help get you started, there are tons of great Christmas themed diamond art kits available.
1. Diamond Painting Christmas Gift Ideas
Choosing the perfect Christmas gift is a difficult thing to do, but it doesn’t have to be. A diamond art print is a great gift for the people on your list. It shows that you put some thought into selecting the right print for them, a print that they’ll enjoy hanging up every Christmas season. It also shows that you took the time to make a gift rather than just buying something.
We all know that time is valuable, especially during the holidays. So, it means that much more when you’ve taken the time to make something special. Christmas themed diamond art prints are available in so many varieties that you will be sure to find something for all the special people on your gift list.
2. Snowman Design
Snowmen, the classic image of cold weather, come in all shapes and sizes. Despite how cold they are, a merry snowman always warms the heart and brings a smile to your face. A snowman print, such as the “Winter Snow Cowboy,” is a great gift for a rustic, country home. Every child will be delighted by the smiling face of Frosty, the holiday’s most beloved snowman.
Whether you want a snowman in a whimsical setting or with a more natural background, you’ll be able to find one that you love. Creating a snowman with diamond art gives the snow an extra shimmer because of the many facets on the diamonds. This shimmer will help bring Frosty to life in your artwork.
3. Diamond Painting Greeting Card
If you aren’t ready to commit to a full-sized diamond art print, consider starting small and creating a holiday greeting card that won’t get thrown away.
Diamond painting greeting cards require only a small portion of the card, such as a character or decoration, to be embellished with the diamonds. This is a great place to start for those who don’t necessarily want to take on the task of a large print or canvas but who still want to try a little diamond art.
It’s also a great way to break from the traditional holiday card and surprise the recipient with something new. Instead of being thrown away at the end of the holiday season with the rest of the cards, yours will get placed in the box with the Christmas decorations and brought out for years to come because of its beautiful shimmer and the thought that went into making it.
4. Santa Claus Design
Nobody’s Christmas decorating is complete without a picture of Santa bearing his gifts, and what better way to decorate than by hanging up a handmade canvas diamond art piece that will be a beautiful addition to the season’s decorations?
Everyone’s favorite jolly character is featured in countless diamond painting prints. Whether he’s sitting under a tree with his reindeer friends or checking names off his list in the “Santa on the Rooftop” canvas, he’ll be a jolly addition to anyone’s Christmas decorations.
A classic car lover will enjoy the “Santa Claus with Classic Car” print. You can find a diamond art canvas featuring Santa with many other backgrounds or with his reindeer friends, distributing gifts and sliding down chimneys.
5. Christmas Train Design
Trains are an undying symbol of Christmas time, carrying toys to all the good little boys and girls, helping Santa with his deliveries. A diamond art print will make the train shimmer in the snow.
The “Countdown to Christmas” print will get you in the holiday spirit as Santa visits the children in the town square. You can find many other Christmas train designs to create for someone who loves trains, especially at Christmas time.
6. Christmas Animals
Who doesn’t love a cute, furry animal in a holiday hat? Or a cheerful hedgehog sitting under the Christmas tree like the one in the “Hedgehog” print?
There is no end to the cuddly puppies and cats that you can find in diamond art prints. You can also find cheerful wintery birds perched in a tree or sitting by their snow-dusted tree houses. A Christmas-themed animal print is perfect for the animal lover on your gift list.
With Christmas coming up, giving a thoughtfully selected, handmade diamond art painting is a great way to show someone you are thinking of them. You can find Christmas prints portraying all types of winter holiday figures, characters, and scenes.
With all the kits out there, you’ll be sure to find something for everyone on your gift list. If you choose a large canvas print, you can even frame it so that it remains in great condition for many holidays to come. A diamond art gift is definitely a gift that will last.
