DIY Thumb Print Tree

Updated: Apr 22, 2020


Hey! That wall in your room looks like it could use a nice piece of handmade art!




Here's what you'll need:


Paper

Crayons

Paints

Thumbs :)


Step 1


  • Using a dark colour like brown or black draw a tree without the leaves on a piece of paper.

  • Make sure to make the tree trunk and branches very dark and pigmented.



Step 2


  • Mix any colour paint such as red/blue/green with white in different quantities to create different shades of your original colour.

  • You can make 2-4 shades.



Step 3 & 4


  • Dip your thumb or index finger in the paint, starting with the darkest shade you've created. Be careful not to spill the paint!

  • Now using the same finger stamp the paint on to the branches of the tree drawing.



Step 5

  • Now continue doing this with the rest of the shades you created going from dark to light.

  • You don't have to be very neat with stamping the paint on!

  • Once you're done, wash your hands and let the paint dry before touching your artwork!

  • You can use this technique to make many different types of trees in different colours and sizes.
