Handprint Flower Picture Frame
To start, we colored a wooden picture frame purchased at Michael’s for only $1 (gotta love those bargains!). Let your child paint the frame in a favorite color or simply paint it yourself by going along the grain to create a nice finish and canvas color that “pops”.
Next trace your child’s hands on a white sheet of paper (we used card stock here since it’s not as flimsy as construction paper).
We used three handprints for our daffodil flower bouquet and added pom poms and pipe cleaners for the center and stem parts.
Love the contrast of the different colors beside each other!
Add a favorite photo of mom’s to the frame to complete the look!
You can even personalize the frame with a special “I love you” message for mom using letter stickers or a permanent marker.
I just love how it turned out and will remember to treasure these special moments!
