The Perfect Christmas Handprint Craft Idea: Rudolph’s Gorgeous Garland
A lovely project for kids to play a major part in, this Christmas handprint craft idea can be made to measure, depending on whether you’d like to string it across a narrow shelf, or an entire wall! Check out Wendy Turner Webster’s top tips below, and create your own sparkling Rudolph garland in time for the big guy in red’s arrival…
I created Rudolph’s head with some heavy glitter paper. Then, I used buttons for the eyes and a beer bottle top filled with red glitter for the legendary nose. I used red and white striped string to link the heads together but, of course, you could make these individually as tree decorations. — Wendy Turner Webster
Christmas Handprint Craft – You Will Need:
I wanted to show off this garland to maximum effect in the picture. This proved rather tricky to begin with, as our house has underfloor heating and not one single fireplace. Photographing the floor doesn’t quite do the trick! Thanks to my partner in crime, Julie, for providing me with a fireplace to set dress for the festive season.
After breathing in the scent of the Christmas candles and watching the five Rudolph heads sparkle, we could declare that the countdown to a crafty Christmas had officially begun! — Wendy Turner Webster
We think this fantastic Christmas handprint craft idea is three-fold amazing – not only does it keeps the kids busy once the school holidays begin, but you’ll also be left with a gorgeous Christmas decoration to add extra sparkle to your home decor this Christmas. And that’s not all – because it features your little ones’ handprints, this pretty festive garland will become a keepsake in years to come! What’s not to love?
