Nothing gets more handmade than a HANDprint project. Am I right? And what could make this project even better? The addition of friends & food! (Thanks, ladies!)
I first spotted this project on Pinterest and have been so excited to make one for our little family. I was able to finally track down the original posting at The Other White House after traveling through many a'blog (it is a very popular project!) The Other White House has a great little tutorial and mad props go out to Heather for sharing the wonderful idea!
|Heather's Handprint Christmas Tree|
- Brown, Yellow, Green Paint (I used Tempera)
- Canvas (Any size will do. I used 12x16)
- Foam applicator
- Small craft paint brush
- Hands (Hopefully still attached to the owner...gross.)
As for the steps, feel free to check out The Other White House's tutorial, but it went a little something like this...Mix paint to desired shades, paint hand, stamp, stamp, paint hand, stamp. After you have your green tree shape, paint on a tree trunk with the brown paint. Next, paint a star (feel free to use a template, we did!) Finally, don't forget to sign/date your masterpiece.
Working with a rambunctious toddler was a little bit of a challenge, but it just gives it all that much more character, right?
So, what about you guys? What handmade decor do you display?
Until next time,
