Handprint Christmas Wreath

We had fun making this handprint Christmas wreath and I love the cute poem to go with it. It's a great Christmas craft for toddlers and preschoolers and makes a cute keepsake. Our handprint wreath is now hanging on our door helping us get into the Christmas mood.

I was challenged by Turtle Mat to create a Christmas wreath and they kindly sent us a few supplies to get us started.  We love our handprint crafts so this handprint wreath was an easy choice. 



To make a simple handprint wreath you will need:


  • Wire wreath frame
  • Green card (we used 2 different shades of green)
  • Red paint
  • Glue
  • A tag and ribbon to add a poem.

I drew around the children's hands onto card to make a template.  Then I used the template to draw and cut enough handprints to make a wreath.  Harry's (age 4) hands were cut out of dark green card and Daisy's (age 16 months) hands were cut out of light green card. I lay the hands onto the wire wreath frame and moved them about until I was happy with the layout.  I then glued them down.

Once the glue had dried the kids painted red berries using their finger and thumb prints.

I tied a tag to our wreath with the poem

My hand made the wreath,
My thumb made the berry,
I hope that you have a Christmas that's merry!
