DIY Gift Idea: Fabric Tree

This beautiful fabric tree requires some parent involvement but the results come out beautiful!

Handprint Tree

Supplies: various fabric scraps, burlap, scissors, modge podge, brown fabric or felt.

Handprint Tree

Step 1: cover a piece of cardboard or wood with burlap. We used staples to attach to the back of cardboard. Hot glue would work also.

Step 2: trace child’s hand, up to elbow, on the brown fabric/felt. Cut this out as the trunk of the tree.

Step 3: begin cutting different sized leaves out of various fabrics. Put modge podge on the back of leaves and lay onto burlap in tree design.

Step 4: once you have enough leaves, add the hand trunk. You can add thin layer of modge podge over entire project once it’s done.
