|This is a very effective way of making a tree – perhaps this one is an apple tree! I have used a similar technique for an Autumn Tree, but instead of finger prints we used scrunched tissue paper for that one.
You will need;
Brown paper for the trunk
Trace around a hand and forearm on the brown paper for the trunk and branches of the tree. Cut the hand and arm shape out and glue it another sheet of paper.
Dot on lots of green paint using fingertips. This creates a lovely leafy tree.
Add some apples or flowers with a different colored paint. We have made our apples with thumb prints, or perhaps they are cherries! Either way they look just like something any tree would be thrilled to have on it’s branches.
