How to make a salt dough fingerprint Christmas Tree
- Make green salt dough using this simple salt dough recipe. (TIP: Add lots of colouring as the salt dough fades a bit once dry)
- Use a biscuit cutter to cut out salt dough Christmas trees.
- Make a small hole at the top of each tree (for hanging). We use a straw or skewer to make the hole.
- Dip your finger into acrylic paint and press your finger into the salt dough (see image below).
- Bake your salt dough at a low temperature or leave it to dry for a couple of days.
- Seal the trees with mod podge.
- Use a black sharpie to complete the lights and add a date.
- Add some thread or ribbon and your fingerprint Christmas tree is complete.
We are going to use our fingerprint christmas trees as gift tags so we used our sharpie to add a message on the back of each tree.
They look great on our Christmas gifts.
What will you use your fingerprint Christmas trees for?
