How to make handprint lilies Pt. 1
How to Make Handprint Flowers
Handprint flowers are made by tracing a hand on paper, cutting it out, and repeating the process until you have made enough handprints to make a “flower arrangement.” Handprint flowers are a fun activity to do with children. They can make great gifts for parents and grandparents. You can make handprints out of paper, tissue paper, or use the handprints to create flowers for holidays, like Martin Luther King Jr. Day and Mother’s Day.
Decorating Paper Handprint Flowers
Trace and cut out handprints.Trace your hand with a pencil on plain white paper. Cut the handprint out with scissors. You can also wait until you’ve painted the handprints to cut them out. Repeat this until you have about 10-12 handprints.
- 10-12 handprints is a good amount, but you can cut out as many as you’d like.
Paint the handprints.Acrylic paint, or any type of paint that is made for kids, will work. Choose 3 or 4 colors. Purple, pink, red, and yellow work well together. Use a paintbrush to paint each handprint that you cut out.
- Keep a cup of water beside you to wash the paintbrush as you switch colors.
Attach handprints to straws.Once the paint has dried, use glue or cellotape to attach the handprints to straws. Any type of plastic or paper straws will work. Cut the bottom of the straws to vary the lengths so that they look better once arranged in the flower pot.
- You can use regular Elmer’s white glue to attach the handprints to straws.
Put the hand print flowers in a flower pot.You can use any flower pot. Arrange the handprint flowers in the flower pot. Place some Play-Doh or Blue-Tac at the bottom of the straws to weigh the flowers down in the pot. Fill the pot about halfway with strips of tissue paper once you are satisfied with the flower arrangement.
- You can add or take away handprints until you are satisfied with the outcome.
Creating Tissue Paper Flowers
Trace your hand.Trace your or your child’s hand on a piece of plain white paper. Cut the hand out to use as a template. This cut out will not be used in the final project.
Trace the hand on tissue paper.Place the template on about 25 sheets of tissue paper. You can use one color of tissue or paper or many colors. Because tissue paper is very thin, you should be able to cut out most or all 25 handprints at once. Each handprint flower will use about 15 pieces of tissue paper, so you will need to cut more out later.
- Use regular scissors to cut out all pieces of tissue paper at once. Dull scissors made for children may not do the job.
Arrange the tissue paper.Separate the pieces of tissue paper. Lay about 15 pieces of the cut out handprints on top of each other. The arrangement does not matter because you’re going to roll the tissue paper around floral wire.
Roll the paper around floral wire.Take a piece of floral wire and bend it in half. Place the folded piece of wire at the bottom of the tissue paper handprints. Use your fingers to roll the bottom of the handprint around the floral wire as if you were trying to wrap the wire. The fingers should be loose in order to resemble petals.
Secure the wire.Use floral tape to secure the tissue paper to the wire. Wrap the floral tape around the tissue paper as far down on the paper as possible. It’s okay if it doesn’t look very pretty. The tape won’t show once the flowers are put in a vase.
Repeat the process.Continue to cut out paper, wrap it around floral wire, and secure the flower with tape. Repeat this process until you have as many flowers as desired. You can use more or less tissue paper for each flower to make some flowers fuller or thinner than others. Put the flowers in a vase when you’re finished.
Making Peace Handprint Flowers
Trace your hand.These flowers are a great idea for children to make on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Begin by tracing your or your child’s hand with a pencil on a piece of light pink paper. Cut it out and then repeat the process on a piece of light and dark brown paper. You should end up with three handprints.
Draw and cut out a stem.Using a pencil, draw a stem on a piece of green paper. Make the stem big enough so that it looks like it could support the size of the handprints. Draw a few leaves branching off of the stem. Cut it out when you are finished drawing.
Glue everything to white paper.Use a glue stick or white Elmer’s glue on the back of the stem. Glue the stem to a piece of white paper. Then, glue each of the handprints at the very top of the stem. The handprints should slightly overlap each other. The order of the handprints doesn’t matter.
