Make framed handprint wall art

Make framed handprint art - handmade pictures - craft ideas - craft -

You will need...

● Your child’s hands
● A frame
● Light-coloured card cut to fit the paper template inside your frame
● Poster paint

Doing the handprints

With pencil, lightly mark on the positions of the handprints on your piece of card. (Remember to take into account the cardboard mount if your frame has one.)

Carefully paint your child’s hands with poster paint (it washes off quite easily) and place them gently but firmly down on top of the marks that you’ve made on the card. Lift off their hands making sure you don’t smudge the handprints. Your child might like to do this.

Wash your child’s hands!

Leave the paint to dry.

Mounting the prints

When the handprints are dry, place the card carefully inside the frame, making sure it’s centralised.

Write the date on the front or back of your picture – it’s always useful to know how old your child was when the handprints were made.
