  • String / Ribbon

How to make a HandPrint Christmas Wreath

Step One: Trace your child’s hand (or have them trace their hand if they can do it themselves) onto a sheet of construction paper. Try to get as many hands to fit on one sheet as you can.

If not, then just cut a little cut in one side and then cut a circle out of the middle. I then taped the little cut back up at the end – but not really necessary!

I went through and glued everything on and then went back through and lifted up a few edges to make them a little more flat / secure.

    What a simple but cute idea! I think I might try this with felt, if you have two or three children it would be fun to make each of their ‘hands’ a different color (add white for a third child?).
