Leaf Handprint Tree

I love handprint crafts.  The reminder and view of my children’s adorable little hands just melts me.  I jump at all the ideas for handprint crafts, particularly seasonal.  I love using their hand prints for leaves and wanted to try making a wreath out of it using a paper plate.

Materials needed:

  • Construction paper in multiple colours for leafs (I used red, green, yellow, and orange)
  • A paper plate
  • Glue (I used a glue gun)
  • Scissors and crayon
  • Brown paper or cardboard for the tree

How to do it:

I used the crayon to trace their hands (crayon doesn’t leave marks on them) then cut them out.

TIP: if you stack multiple papers (I used orange, red, and yellow) together when cutting you only have to cut once and it saves time.

This was my first time doing Po’s handprint so I was ridiculously excited about it.  His little hands are so cute!

After cutting out the hand leaves, I used a glue gun to glue it onto a paper plate, I used my toddlers hand prints with the bright colours around the outside and the small baby green ones in the centre, making it look more like a tree.

Next I cut a small leaf out of the brown and a large trunk.  Glued it all together and I have a beautiful handprint tree!
