A handprint Christmas tree can be a great art and craft activity for children. If you are doing an art project, you need to put green paint on your palm and put its impression on canvas. If it is a part of a craft project, you can cut out the outline of your hand and glue it to a bulletin board, card, etc.
These lovely handprint Christmas trees would be a great keepsake gift that kids can give to their grandparents and other family members. The rhinestones make them attractive to youngsters.
You can use this handmade tree as a part of your home decoration for Christmas. Your child’s hand is painted in green and pressed on canvas for this art. The brown trunk and yellow star are hand painted.
You would need to scroll down the above-linked web page a bit to arrive at the tutorial for the Christmas tree craft. Here a combination of the handprints of two different children has been used.
Two shades of green make this handprint Christmas tree look enviable. You need to trace a child’s hand on scrapbook paper and cut it out for making the tree.
You can hang this X-mas tree on the bulletin board of the classroom. For this, you just need to cut a triangular piece of white paper and take children’s handprint on it. The different handprint sizes make it look unique.
Apart from the handprints themselves, the ornaments are an added attraction of this art form. They are made by dipping children’s fingers in paint and putting the impression on the body of the homemade tree.
This handprints with the fingers pointing downwards differentiate this X-mas tree from the others enlisted here. A paper rectangle for the trunk and yellow star at the tip act as embellishments.
Here, little hands are traced on green construction paper and cut out before gluing them to a poster board in the form of a tree. The family photo decoration gives it a personalized look.
The project would keep little ones engaged for hours. Though it might get a little messy, the end result would be worth it. Note that the number of handprints in a row keeps decreasing as you go up the tree. You can embellish it with painted fingerprints, ribbons, lace, rhinestones, etc. You would be glad about the efforts once the project is completed.
