Fingerprint Tree

I can't believe it's taken me so long to share this with you!

Back in May, I went to a family wedding and wanted to present the lovely newleyweds with something they could treasure. We had been to a wedding in April where guests were asked to use an ink pad to put a fingerprint on a large print of a tree. I thought this was a lovely idea. I looked into so called 'fingerprint trees' and it turns out you can purchase prints and kits etc but of course, I decided to make my own.

I used a die cut shape to draw around at different angles to create the branches and tried to be symmetrical. I also stamped their family name into the trunk before colouring the whole thing in. I popped the tree into a frame and provided one colour ink pad. 
At the wedding, I knew it was an opportunity for friends and family to contribute to this and luckily, the couple were a laid back and didn't mind the uncouthness of my telling them what the gift was JUST in case they wanted it out late in the day with their guest book. It was never my intention for it to happen like that, I thought they might ask friends and family over time as they visited their home but it just happened to be the perfect opportunity at the wedding. The groom had seen this before and suggested everyone write their name in their fingerprint too so although I haven't seen the finished tree I imagine it was well filled with lots of lovely coloured 'leaves' with guest names. 

Maybe I will get an opportunity to share a photo of the tree now at a later date :-)

  1. We did a finger print tree using the stamp template which was our wedding invitation. It is now hanging on our living room wall. Such a lovely momento.

  12. Christmas is all about giving gifts and creating memories so let your children have the Christmas Tree Finger Painting Activity that they have always wanted to have. If you have ever ran into a boring hole at the mall that you just can't get out of then this is the activity for you. Christmas is all about making memories and creating new ones with your children. I know that my family has had a Christmas tree since I was a child. It has been a tradition in our family and one that we look forward to every year. It's always a good time for us to gather around the Christmas tree and have our children paint their own Christmas trees.
