Handprint Art

This is another post about a project I helped make to decorate my mom's laundry room. I also made some Crocheted T-shirt Rugs and a Geometric Painting as well as sewing some colorful curtains. 

To be honest, if I cannot figure out what to give my mom for Christmas or a birthday (which happens A LOT), I decide to make something for her. This time I decided to employ my nieces to make a one-of-a-kind gift that will keep growing with our family.

Supplies needed:

  • Square canvases
  • Paint and paintbrush
  • Children

Step 1: Paint the canvas - I painted the front an off-white color and the sides brown.

Step 2: Carefully paint the kid's palm with the desired color

Step 3-4: Press the kids hand onto the canvas

Step 5: Let dry
Repeat step 2-5 if you want handprints that have 2 colors (as pictured above)

Paint on the name of the kid and the date if desired.
