Welcome back to another fun coloring experience! We are still going strong with Christmas Crafts and there are several new GIANT Christmas themed Posters to color out! Always wanted to have a GIANT Nutcracker on your door?! Or a beautiful Christmas Angel protect you from all evil?! Then head over and have a look. In this post I would like to introduce to you my Christmas Market Stall Shelf Poster! So many little details and so much to color!
I created this poster for one of our kids’ school events with the ‘German Christmas Market‘ as a theme. So you will find a lot of German or European elements in this poster!
There is a Christmas pyramid with a nativity in it. Can you spot it?! The heat of the candles make the wheel on top turn and with it turn all 3 levels around and around. Beautiful! Do you see the Christmas Market Stall Roof?! This is now sitting on top of our TV in the living room! LOL
The Christmas Market Stall Shelf Poster you see in the picture above is HUGE, the biggest poster I have ever created. It takes 48 pages to print and then put together. It measures 205cm x 108cm (6.7ft x 354ft). It was so much fun to color. Of course as a group! And we used mainly watercolor paints and then went with a little acrylic and pens (e.g. Sharpies) and pencils into detail.
I understand that the majority of us cannot color in such a big poster. This is more for schools or events at church?! So I am offering you 2 sizes!
Poster Option No. 1: 4×3 pages = 12 pages to print at 104cm x 54cm (40.9in x 21.2in)
GIANT Poster Option No. 2: 8×6 pages = 48 pages to print at 205cm x 108cm (80.7in x 42.5in)
Both posters just like all of Hattifant’s GIANT or almost GIANT posters work the same way.
HOW TO MAKE
The are EASY to make! I wanted for us to be able to just download a file and then print and not having to organize into our already busy day a visit to the print shop. Don’t get me wrong. Print shops are great! But sometimes it is just easier to have the option to get the poster ready and prepared at home. Hattifant’s posters you can print at home or at school. You will download the templates as PDF files, print them, cut out the templates and then glue them together. It is really all very easy and no puzzle exercise. Every single page will tell you exactly who it wants to be neighbor with.
First step to take: Head over to Gumroad or Etsy and get your own Christmas Market Stall Shelf Poster to Color Bundle. Then get your scissors ready because we have to trim the pages a little to be able to glue them together.
When that is done it is best to arrange the individual pieces on a bigger surface such as your floor or a big table. That way you have them all in the right order before starting to glue.
And then happy glueing! Start off in the left hand upper corner (page 1) and work your way down to the bottom left hand corner (page 12 or 48 – depending on which poster size you have chosen).
That’s it! You made yourself at home (or school, or office, or… ) a poster that is now ready to be colored! Woohoo!
Your home, classroom or office will look amazing! I cannot wait to see the first pictures coming in and see how you painted this Christmas Market Stall Shelf!!!
