Our Christmas tradition is to add a new decoration to our tree every year. This year, with going back to work, I was Last Minute Minnie and found myself dashing around supermarkets looking for something “special” to add to the tree. This, however, was unsuccessful. Then I came across these cute, little wooden decorations from The Range.
I decided to try my hand at being a Pinterest Mum (spoiler: I’m not very good at it!) and create our own fingerprint tree decorations.
These fingerprint tree decorations are so simple and only require a small selection of colours:
Use only a thin layer of paint and print it onto each of your decorations like so:
Allow the decorations to dry before applying any detail.
For the robins, print a second, red fingerprint over the first. I used gel pens to add intricate detail.
For the reindeers, allow time to dry before adding the second print. I have used different mediums (marker pen, gel pen, paint) on each of these to show a variety of ways to add detail.
Unlike the reindeers, you can apply both prints at the same time for the snowmen. Again, once they are dry you can add detail (my second snowman appears to have lost his nose!)
The final one is Santa. This decoration isn’t as obvious that it is a finger print, like the others, but I love it anyway!

What a brilliant idea!
