Create a Handprint Santa for Unique Christmas Cards


Colossal Christmas Countdown Holiday EventMake a Handprint Santa!

Put your personal stamp on holiday greetings this year with this handprint design.


  1. Red craft paper
  2. Glue stick
  3. Plain notecard or card stock
  4. Tempura paints
  5. Paper plates
  6. Googly eyes


  1. Cut Santa-hat shapes (minus the pom-poms and white trim) from the craft paper, then glue one onto each card. Glue a pair of googly eyes a fingertip's width below each hat.
  2. Pour white tempera paint onto one paper plate, and a dollop each of red, black, and pink (mix some red and white) onto another. Stamp white handprint beards, then use fingertips to stamp the trim on the hats, and a nose, mouth, and cheeks on each face.

I'm a former 7th grade Science teacher turned stay-at-home mom that lives in Houston, Texas. I am married to my college sweetheart and have a beautiful daughter named Riley, who definitely keeps me on my toes! I am also involved in starting a small business which would both manufacture and sell an invention that I've patented, called Toothpaste 2 Go. I love interacting with my readers and hope to learn as much about you as you learn about me!
