DIY Gift Idea: Framed Fingerprint Art

If you looking for an affordable gift to make for your family that will be treasured for years to come, I think this framed fingerprint art would be perfect.  In fact, I would love several of these not only in the shape of hearts but Christmas Trees, Stars, Leaves, Turkeys, Bells, you name it.

Framed Fingerprint Heart

Here is how they made the heart-shaped Framed Fingerprint Art:

Supplies Needed:

  • Pencil
  • Acrylic Paints
  • A large piece of watercolor or other sturdy white paper
  • Black fine sharpie


  1. Lightly trace a guideline or two below your drawing.
  2. Write the names along with it with a marker.
  3. When family members arrive, ask them to choose a stamp-pad color and make scattered fingerprints inside the shape, as well as one just above their name.

After your dinner party is over, frame your new artwork or wrap it as a gift for that special someone.
I think handmade gifts are so memorable and special and can’t wait to share with you the ones we will be making with our family.
