We love making handprint crafts with Charlotte – like this festive wreath right here. They’re the perfect little keepsakes to capture kiddos at that exact moment in time.


  • Green and red construction paper
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick
  • Sheet of square scrapbooking paper
  • Red sequins
  • Craft glue (we used Aleene’s Original Tacky Glue)
  • Bow Template (available below)
  • Paintbrush
  • Red extra fine glitter


Trace hand onto green construction paper and cut out with scissors, ensuring you have enough to create wreath.

Spread glue stick on back of palm portion of handprint cutout and attach to top of scrapbooking paper. Repeat previous step, arranging handprints in circular motion to create wreath.

Place small dots of craft glue on back of three red sequins and attach to wreath in desired location to create berry clusters. Repeat until you have the desired number of berry clusters. Let dry completely.

Print Bow Template onto red construction paper and cut out with scissors. Using a paintbrush, spread craft glue on bow and sprinkle with glitter. Shake off excess glitter and let dry completely. Affix bow to wreath with craft glue.


ORANGE & FIELD TIP: Depending on how many handprints you need, cut sheets of construction paper in half or fourths and staple them together. Trace the handprint on the top sheet and cut them out with scissors. Be careful not to staple too many sheets together, though. Doing so will cause the handprints to not cut properly.
