Supplies Needed to Make a Fingerprint Christmas Tree Handprint Christmas Card
Directions to Make a Handprint Christmas Card
1. First fold your green cardstock in half and trace your hand so that the wrist is on the folded part.
2. Cut out your handprint and cut the top tapered in so that it looks like the top of a Christmas tree.
3. Add your trunk of the Christmas tree by cutting out a rectangle shape from your brown paper. Glue to the top of your card so that when it opens up the bottom has more space for writing.
4. Draw on your Christmas tree light strings with black sharpie by making two swirls. Be sure to space these out enough so that you can fit your fingerprint christmas lights on them.
5. Add 3 spots on each string of lights for where your fingerprints will go with your black sharpie. Then using green, red and gold paint make your fingerprints!
6. Add a little bit of white paint on top of your fingerprints to give the light bulbs a more realistic look.
7. Now cut out a large star from your gold foam paper and glue to the top of your Christmas tree.
8. Finally, write your message inside! You can also write a poem inside too.
Wouldn’t this look great on top of a gift? Or even add some string or ribbon and turn it into an ornament!
