I love getting flowers, but in a lot of ways I feel like they are a waste of money because they die so quickly. This Handprint Flower Craft
really speaks to me since it lasts and lasts. Since it uses kids handprints, it is a wonderful keepsake that grandparents will especially love.
Whether you are making this handprint flower craft as an Easter gift or a whimsical decoration, it is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face.
Kids will love making this spring craft because they get to smear their hands with paint, which is just plain fun. But don't worry, it's not as messy as it looks. After you make these flowers try this glitter flower art for kids
Hi Mess for Less Readers!! We are so happy to be here today! A huge Thank You to Vicky for inviting us!! For those of you that do not know us, we are two sisters, Cari and Cortnee, who blog over at Two Sasters
. Cari, is 14 months older and lives with her 2 year old daughter and hubby. Cortnee and her hubby are expecting their first child in a few short months. Today we wanted to share with you a handprint flower craft!
My family helps out A LOT with my daughter (and Cortnee's niece)! I am always trying to find things to send them, or better yet, make them. I think they especially love any crafts/gifts that involve my daughter!!
We are going to give Grandma and Nana this special hand-print flower bouquet at Easter.
Here is what we did.
Handprint Flower Craft
When we use paint, I usually set it up like this.
I started out by painting my little ones hands with one color at a time.
I helped her to press them down on the paper.
We did this a few times (one for each “flower”) and once the paint was dry, I cut out all of the hand prints.
Since each hand print need an exact match for the back of the flower, I traced each one on matching construction paper.
I put glue on the back of the plain print and then the green pipe cleaner on top.
Then second hand print went on the top. This is how it looked in the end.
Next I filled the vase with green grass and some Easter candy – Hershey Kisses:)
Lastly, I placed each of the hand print “flowers” in the vase and topped it off with some more candy.
I know Grandma and Nana are going to LOVE this!
Thank you Two Sasters! How cute and sweet is this Handprint Flower Craft? I love how you can find almost all the stuff at the dollar store so it's budget friendly too.
