Again, this is another craft that I found on Pinterest. Each time I look at it, I smile! (Please excuse my lack of photography talent—Hubby is normally the one who takes the shots for the blog. The left side is a little cut off and the whole thing is crooked, but I thought you’d get the idea).
Paint (green, white, gold, and brown)
Palette (I used an old aluminum pie tin)
Newspaper to cover your counter top
1. Because I have artists in my family and took art for a while, I can’t stand the thought of using a bare canvas. I painted it a creamy white and let it dry completely.
2. Help your child make his or her handprints in the shape of a Christmas tree. Let that dry.
3. Add the star and trunk of the tree. You can add fingerprint ornaments, but I liked it being plain like this. Voila! This is a great keepsake or would be a good extra gift for a grandparent. I also thought about using a really large canvas and letting a class of kiddos do this for their teacher.
