These festive little fingerprint Christmas trees are probably my favorite design for this little craft. They make such sweet little keepsakes and my little ones have each made one to sit either side of the TV in our front room. We love handmade Christmas decorations and with the current COVID situation we have been making the majority of our decorations from scratch. It feels so cosy and homely to be surrounded by handmade decor and the fact that its not perfect is exactly what makes it perfect!
Here’s what we used
Thick card (it needs to be sturdy crafting card otherwise it will bend. You can use thin card but it will need to be mounted onto thicker card)
Take the toilet roll and coat it in brown paint before putting it aside to dry. This will make the trunk of your Christmas tree.
Take some green card and cut out a Christmas tree shape, don’t forget that you can use our free printable if you need a template!
Now for the fun part! Help little one dot multi coloured fingerprints all over the Christmas tree and pop it aside to dry with the trunk.
Cut out a star and glue it in position at the very top of the tree.
Take the trunk and make a snip at one end, then make an equal sized snip directly opposite the first one. Slot the Christmas tree in to the trunk and your adorable fingerprint Christmas tree is finished!
I originally posted these cute button Christmas trees a couple of years ago as one of my first ever crafts but I decided it was time to revisit them and give the post a little freshen up! My little guy has made several of these today in so many different styles and he has them all lined up in the windowsill like a little Christmas tree forest! I love these little trees and will be sharing a couple of different ideas for how to decorate them.
We finally put our Christmas tree up today and the little ones are starting to get super excited. We won’t be able to have our big family Christmas that we normally have but we’ll make the best of it that we can and what better way to start the season than by decorating the tree and watching home alone! How do you start the festive season?
Here’s what we used
Strong crafting card (flimsy card won’t be able to stand and will bend, if you use thin card you will need to mount it on thick card so it can stand)
