Handprint Christmas Tree Craft

Handprint Christmas Tree with photos as ornaments

We have designed this Handprint Christmas Tree to display all your friends and family for the holidays. Make it even bigger and it can become a whole class project with the teacher as the star at the top. Also a great  project for your scout troop.


Did you know that the first decorated Christmas tree was in Riga, Latvia in 1510 while the first printed reference to Christmas trees appeared in Germany in 1531. Source: Christmas Tree Facts – University of Illinois Extension
