When all else fails, we bust out the paint. These Fingerprint Snowy Trees are a stunning winter art idea, while also being an easy craft for everyone. All it takes is a little bit of cutting and a lot of fingerprints!
How are things looking where you’re at? Here, it’s snowy. The ground is covered. We were driving back from the store earlier and I couldn’t help but notice how everything was just so white. It’s quite beautiful, if slightly intimidating. And also great winter art inspiration.
If you’re not quite so snowy, though, and need a few different winter craft ideas then you may also like our Handprint Arctic Fox Craft, this Paper Strip Polar Bears Craft, a Paper Winter Hat Craft, and our Cotton Ball Paper Plate Penguin Craft. But for snowy purposes, be sure to also check out our Paint Splatter Snowy Winter Trees as well as our Paper Straw Snowflake Cards.
To make our Fingerprint Snowy Trees Craft you will need cardstock, white acrylic paint, and scissors. 3 super easy supplies for a super simple craft!
Use Fingerprints to make Paper Snowy Trees
- Cardstock – assorted colors
- White acrylic paint
Begin by cutting the trees. These are really simple. To make them symmetrical, we folded a sheet of cardstock first. Then, about ½“ away from the fold make a cut up. From there, cut over and form a triangle.
Now, unfold the tree shape. You can fold the opposite way to make sure the trees are flat again.
Pour white acrylic paint on a flat surface. Dip your finger in the paint. And begin to make fingerprints across the trees.
Make sure you get the sides and top of the tree, where snow would fall.
Continue with different colors of trees until you have enough for a snowy winter forest! So beautiful!
