How to Make DIY Handprint Christmas Tree Ornaments

What you need:

  • green paper (cardboard)
  • gold foil or gold star paper
  • giant craft stick
  • buttons, gems or paper
  • drag
  • pencil
  • glue
  • brown paint
  • hanging thread and clear tape or washi tape

Start by painting the large craft stick with brown paint. Set aside to dry.

While the paint dries, it’s time to make the tree. Draw around your hand (fingers spread out) with a pencil.

Cut along the head contour.

If the paint is dry, apply glue to the top of the craft stick. If the paint is not completely dry, skip this step and proceed with decorating your mini Christmas tree.

Glue the hand shape onto the craft stick.

Decorate the tree! Glue a shiny star to the top of the tree.

Make small ornaments with buttons or gems (or whatever small decorative material is handy).

If you want to turn this handprint Christmas tree into an ornament, flip it over and attach yarn for hanging to the back (top) of the craft stick.

All has been done!
