Handprint Tree {Craft}

I love making crafts with Lil Man that can be incooperated into my everyday decor. Depending on the material, they can become great keepsakes for years to come. This handprint tree is not only perfect for fall decorations – but you could make it for any season of the year or just have them go crazy with colors for their own special touch.

Our canvas is mainly Lil Man’s handprints, but you could also do a “family” tree where everyone’s handprints get involved in the making. Even pets can add a pawprint to the tree.

Here is how you and your child, can make your own handprint tree:

First paint the trunk of your tree on the canvas. This will give you can idea of where the handprints need to go.

Then – paint your child’s hands completely and have them press them on the canvas. Repeat until your tree is full of “leaves.”

{I did my handprints for example but they eventually were covered by Lil Man’s handprints because his colors stood out more. Pick colors that will go together well but also be able to stand out on the canvas}

Then to finish it off – add some personalization to make it your own. I added this owl felt sticker to the canvas. He’s just “whoo’ing” around in our tree.

Then of course, let it all dry and add your child’s age/dates on the back for remembrance. display proudly :)

What other ways do you like to in-cooperate your family into crafts?
