Christmas Craft: Fingerprint Homemade Cards

Share:
  Today, a Christmas craft is shared by Bernadette at Mom to 2 Posh Lil Divas.Leave your fingerprint these holidays with some fingerprint Christmas Cards! These crafty cards are adorable and very kid-friendly!

 

 

I adore the holidays – lots of family, friends, food, good times, getting together and, of course, fun activities galore! The Lil Divas and I have been busy little elves: crafting, creating and learning.

I like to have them make homemade gifts, ornaments and cards for loved ones. One of the things I am particularly obsessed with fond of are hand & fingerprint crafts. It is personal, a piece of the Lil Divas frozen in time – a heartfelt keepsake.

Today, I am going to share some fun & easy ideas for:

Fingerprint Christmas Cards

Supplies needed:

  • card stock
  • green, white & red paint [acrylic would be best but you can use tempra - we did!]
  • sequins & glue [optional]

 

Fingerprint Christmas Tree Card

 

Here’s how to make the fingerprint Christmas Tree cards:

 

 

Using a thumbprint dipped in green paint make a tree by applying 6 thumbprints for the bottom, then 5,4,3,2 and finally 1 for the tip of the tree.

 

Paint a trunk using brown paint or use 2 thumbprints.

 

 

Apply sequin decorations if desired.

 

 

Allow to dry and write message inside to complete card.

 

 

Fingerprint Wreath Card

 

Here’s how to make the fingerprint Christmas wreath cards:

 

Using thumbprint dipped in green paint make a circle of fingerprints to form a wreath.

 

Using pinkie dipped in red paint add a few berries scattered throughout the wreath.

 

Draw a bow or add some ribbon if desired.

 

Allow to dry and write message inside to complete card.

 

I hope you enjoyed our little tutorial & are inspired to make some homemade crafts with your little ones.

We have lots of other holiday and finger/hand/foot print crafts on our blog.
We’d love to have you stop by and see what else we’ve been up to.

    Cute, cute, cute! I love the finger print tree cards. We've done lots of handprint crafts, but not many thumbprint ones…. Might need to give one of these a try next week!
