For our Christmas Tree Fingerprint Lights Craft you will first want to print our Free Printable Christmas Tree Template. Then, you’ll need green, yellow, and brown cardstock. You’ll also need acrylic paints in Christmas light colors like red, blue, yellow, orange, we even used white and purple. The only other supplies needed are scissors, a black sharpie, a glue stick, and of course, cute little fingers to print with.
