baby.sweets4ever made and framed these as grandparent holiday gifts this year.  He also made one for me! Grin



Supplies:
Finger paint
Paper
Marker
Frame (not shown)

Gather your supplies.  We used the paper plates as little paint palettes


Doodle the "wire" for your Christmas light strands


Squeeze out your paint colors


Squish your fingers in the paint Grin


Print each bulb onto the doodled wire


Bask in the glory of your super cute fingerprint lights!


Totally and absolutely inspired by Beneath the Rowan Tree! Smiley
