Here are the supplies you’ll need to make this Santa Handprint

– White cardstock (sturdier than paper to make it a card)

– Paint for Santa’s face – we used this color

– Googly eyes

– Small red pom pom

– Cotton Balls

– Glue – we used this glue to glue on the pom poms which can sometimes be tricky to stay on with regular glue

– Red and white felt

 

Steps to Make the Santa Handprint Craft

1. First fold your white cardstock in half and trace your hand so that the wrist is on the folded part.

3.  Now paint the middle of the Santa handprint for the face.

4.  Trace the top of your hand on your red felt to get the size for the hat. Glue the felt to the top of the handprint. You’ll want to cut the red felt top rounded so it looks more like a hat.

Cut out some white felt for the brim of Santa’s hat and glue on top of the red felt.
