Family Handprint Artwork

This is really great. A little work to plan it all out and this could be a great addition to your wall – and a sure conversation piece. First get a tracing of each persons hand and cut out. Lay them in a pattern on stretched canvas. How many colors will you need? Whats your background color? How do these colors co-ordinate with each other? .. with your home decor? Is it going to be a gift? Here the colors are painted – but you could cut circles from fabric, wall paper, construction paper. You could also place each persons name under hand print. I would also create a date.

Use tempura (finger) paint and glitter (for the tree branches and star). Thicker paper works well – poster board works great – just cut it down to size! Make one each year to compare hand sizes.
