Santa Handprint Craft: Tutorial

Step 1: Download and print the Santa Handprint Craft template onto white card stock! This can be accessed via the Arty Crafty Kids Club.

Paint the large oval a skin toned colour and leave to thoroughly dry.

Step 2: Cut out the Santa elements. 

Using red paper, trace around Santa’s hat. 

Using red card stock, trace around the big red nose!

Step 3: Stick Santa’s hat to the top of the oval.

Step 4: The Big Bouncy Red Nose! 

Using scissors or a paper cutter, cut out two even strips of red paper – ideally, the strips will be no more than 1cm wide and for length, I would recommend cutting the paper from the shortest side of an A4 piece of paper.

Take the two strips and position them in a 90° angle as shown above. Glue the connecting papers together.

Simply fold the bottom strip over the top and crease the fold along the edge. This will make the accordion fold tight!

Step 5: Continue alternating the strip folds until you’ve used half of the available paper. Once you’re half way, seal the end with glue and cut off the remaining paper.

Step 6: Glue the bottom of the accordion fold just below the hat, leaving lots of room at the bottom of the oval.

Step 7: Stick the red big nose to the top of the accordion fold. The nose will now stretch and bounce, and will give the handprint beard space to open and close! 

Add eyes!

Step 8: Using white card stock, trace around a pair of arty crafty hands and cut out. 

Keep alternating the strip folds until you run out of paper and seal the ends with glue.

Step 9: Position the hands as shown above. 

There needs to be a good amount of space between the hands to allow the photo to fully revealed upon opening.
