Then we set them to dry while she went for a sleep!
I cut around them individually, including all of the fingers.
I found an old cardboard box and cut a large triangle as a base to stick the prints on. This formed the outline of the tree shape.
Because the box had some paint on and wasn’t the right colour, I covered it with green tissue paper. Cutting it out of green card in the first place would have been even better.
I arranged the handprints facing downwards in rows, starting at the bottom and working up towards the top, overlapping them slightly.
I arranged Little Pop’s four prints into something that resembled a star shape and stuck them together.
The finished tree. Time for decorating!
Cakie stuck on some acrylic gems and a few sweetie wrappers and pieces of scrunched tissue paper.
Any bits of colourful paper and junk material would look lovely.
”Ta Da!” (to quote a certain 2 year old!)
Now where to put it?….
