How to Make Handprint Flowers
- Cut out three handprints out of cardstock – yellow, pink, and purple.
- Cut out two black pot shapes per flower pot. You will need six black pots in total.
- Glue the black pot to the bottom of your popsicle stick. Flip it over and add a second pot.
- Wrap a pipe cleaner around a pencil to make it curly. Glue the twisted pipe cleaner to the cardstock leaves (I used hot glue for mine. Adults only!)
- Glue the twisted pipe cleaner and leaves to the back of your popsicle stick stem.
- Glue the handprint flower on top.
TIPS FOR MAKING HANDPRINT FLOWERS
- For an extra special treasure, you can paint your kids’ hands and then press down on a piece of paper and cut out! I love doing this because it adds a personal touch to the flowers and doubles as an adorable Mother’s Day craft!
- Have your kids pick out their favorite colors and make the flowers out of those colors!
- If you don’t have a hot glue gun, don’t worry! You can use regular glue for this craft and let it sit while the glue dries.
GET CREATIVE WITH THESE HANDPRINT FLOWERS
Another fun way to use these handprint flowers is to put them in a mason jar and set them on a table or counter like a flower bouquet! Instead of getting real flowers for Mother’s Day, you can give her gorgeous handprint flowers instead! In addition, you can attach several of the flowers together to make a more substantial bouquet.
You can also give these flowers out as a special gift to friends and loved ones! For example, this craft would make a wonderful keepsake for a grandparent or other close relatives. Then, as your kids grow older, those relatives can see how much they’ve grown! In addition, you could give these out to nursing homes or members of your Church as a handmade gift to brighten someone’s day!
What can I use these Handprint Paper Flowers for?
This craft makes a wonderful Mother’s Day gift or a special keepsake of your little one’s tiny hands. You can also make flower handprint art to hang on your wall or your kid’s walls as a beautiful statement! All you need to do is glue the handprint flowers to a canvas or a piece of paper and hang it on a wall! In addition, you can write little notes on the handprints and save them for when your kids get older so that they can see what you wrote!
If I want to make a handprint with paint, what paint should I use?
You can use washable paint to make your handprints. Washable paint is a lifesaver for moms because it doesn’t stain your kids’ clothes and washes right out in the washer.
What age works best for these Handprint Flowers?
Kids of all ages can help make this craft! It’s a great way to sneak in some sensory play without making it a chore. They can feel the stems of the flowers, the craft sticks, and the cardstock paper with their little hands. Then, they can feel the paint, giving them the ultimate sensory experience!
How do I make a Mother’s Day card with the flowers?
You can glue the flowers onto a piece of construction paper and fold the paper to make a card. You can also have your kids write on each individual flower a Mother’s Day note or what they love most about their mom. I love this take on a Mother’s Day card because it’s so personal and will surely make you tear up!
