DIY Holiday Bookmarks!

Happy BOOKMAS! I forgot to mention that Bookmas is relevant to all holidays, it is just because I celebrate Christmas so it is called 'Bookmas.' For Day 2 I decided to do a fun post! Do any of you enjoy painting? Well, today I would like to show you a simple way to make Holiday Bookmarks!


  • Watercolor paper!
  • 1 Flat Brush!
  • 1 Round brush!
  • Red Watercolor paint!
  • Yellow Watercolor paint! (not shown in picture)
  • Sharpie!
  • Water!
  • Scissors!


  1. Cut a Bookmark sized rectangle out of the paper
  2. Cover the rectangle with water using the flat brush
  3. Start at the top and spread the paint to the bottom (make it go from dark to light) (using the flat brush)
  4. Wait a few minutes for it to dry  
  5. Use the round brush to add dots all over the bookmark
  6. Wait for that to dry
  7. Use the sharpie to write 'Happy Holidays' or whatever you want! Also, you can use different colors based on your holiday! You could also stop at step 6 like I did!
  8. And just wait a day or two and you can use it!
  9. Optional: Laminate it with tape or actually pay to do it!
  10. Thanks for reading! I hope it was easy to understand!
    If you recreate, I want to see them! So use the hashtag #Bookmas2018Bookmarks on whatever post you have with it!

    So long!
