Handprint Christmas Tree Instructions
Starting making your handprint Christmas tree by covering one hand in green paint. Then, make your hand prints in a Christmas tree shape, adding more paint to the hand after each print. Here are two different Christmas tree shape suggestions.
Next, finger paint a yellow or gold star on top of your hand print Christmas tree, and a brown tree trunk.
If desired, sprinkle glitter over the wet paint.
Once the paint is dry, glue on the rhinestones. Use a black pen or marker to make strings of Christmas lights on the tree.
After the paint and glue are completely dry, use markers or crayons to draw a background for the tree, or gifts under the tree.
