This Watercolor Handprint Fall Tree Craft comes together with darling little handprints, the fun of painting with watercolors, and the changing leaves of the fall season!
A beautiful fall keepsake craft, and simple, too, we adore this fall tree craft. And the fun thing about watercolors is that every painting is unique, as well, and they all come out perfect. We used fall color watercolors to resemble leaves as they change colors on the trees.

To make our Watercolor Handprint Fall Tree Craft you will need watercolor paints, white paper, brown, blue, and green cardstock, scissors, and a glue stick.
Make a Handprint Fall Tree with Watercolors
- White paper
- Cardstock – brown, blue, green
- Glue stick
Begin by getting your watercolors ready.
Fill a plain piece of white paper with watercolor art in fall colors.
Red, orange, yellow, and green. Let dry completely.
Now, trace the handprint on one side of the watercolor page. Fold in half to cut two out, then do the same on the other side.
You want to get as many handprints out of the watercolor print as possible. We were able to get 4 from ours. A smaller handprint may get more and a larger handprint less. But you should get at least 4 handprints to cover the tree.
Next, cut a strip from the green cardstock. Also cut a simple tree trunk shape from the brown cardstock. Glue the strip of green on the bottom of the blue cardstock. Then glue the tree trunk over it.
Then, glue the watercolor handprints around the top of the tree trunk.
