Valentine’s Tree Handprints


This is an easy and adorable Valentine’s Day craft that I did with my daughters. I was inspired by some online photos of children’s handprints made into trees for Fall crafts, and thought I could customize them especially for Valentine’s Day as a beautiful keepsake that I can enjoy every year.

I bought a 2 pack of canvases at Dollarama (yup only $1 for 2). I then painted the girls hands and a couple inches up their arms in brown paint and they made imprints to make the tree (I did paint in the trunk a bit to even it out and make it look more like a trunk). The girls then used their index fingers to make grass. I then used my handy dandy Silhouette cutting machine to make tiny hearts in 5 different shades of pink and the girls glued on the hearts however they wanted. Our finishing touch was a little Valentine owl with googly eyes sitting on the tree branch (the space in between their index finger and thumb was perfect!).
