Make a Valentine’s Day Handprint Tree Craft
To make our Sponge Heart Handprint Tree you will need cardstock in brown and the background color of choice, acrylic paint in red, pink, and white, a sponge, scissors, and a glue stick.
Handprint Heart Tree Craft Supplies Needed
- Cardstock – brown, grey (or your background color of choice)
- Acrylic paint – red, pink, white
- Black sharpie
- Glue stick
Sponge Heart Tree Step by Step Instructions
Begin by placing the cardstock width-wise.
Trace the little one’s hand, past wrist, on brown cardstock.
Cut out the handprint.
Glue the handprint to your background cardstock of choice. We used light grey for our background color to make sure the hearts popped.
Now, use a black sharpie to draw 3 hearts on a regular sponge. Try to make them different sizes and shapes.
Cut out the hearts.
Next, pour paint on a flat surface. We use a paper plate. Then take a heart and dip in the paint, covering the sponge completely. We used our largest heart sponge for the red hearts.
And press the heart onto the cardstock, around the handprint.
Continue with more red hearts.
And white, too.
We stamped a few hearts toward the bottom of the page, as well. Make your tree your own. Until it’s your idea of perfect and full of love.
