There’s nothing a mother loves more than a handmade handprint flower bouquet from the little one. This Mother’s Day, let’s get the little tots to do something for us 😛

Mother's Day Handprint Flower Bouquet

Draw your handprint on various colour papers.

Cut them out.

Paste them onto a piece of paper; the handprint being the petals.

Arrange and paste them until they form a flower.

Cut a piece of felt as the stalk and some heart shape as the leaves. Paste them.

Done! A bouquet of handprint flowers for Mommy! Boy, he doesn't look too happy 😛 😀

Fresh flowers are beautiful but they don’t last. This is my first time venturing into making paper flowers. Instead of using tissue paper, I used crepe paper instead.

Crepe paper carnation

I used crepe paper instead of tissue paper and pipe cleaner instead of the floral wire.

Accordion fold the crepe paper. Fold it once from one side to the other and fold again.

Loop the pipe cleaner in the middle and slowly pull and spread out the crepe paper.

I used pipe cleaner so that it can be looped around little girls' wrist as a corsage. Ideal as a wedding favor 😀

Mother’s Day is fast approaching. It will be nice to make a bouquet of this and present them to Mommies out there 🙂

Handprint Flower

Mix red and white together to get pink. You may also use any other colour as you wish 🙂

Paint your palm and print it onto a piece of paper.

Repeat and print all around till you get a complete flower.

Paint your fingers green and print it on the bottom of the paper as the grass.

Paint your fingers a lighter shade of green and print it on the bottom of the paper again.

Draw a line down from the flower to the grass. Use the brush to dot the middle of the flower and you are done.

The beautiful handprint flower 😀

Once it is all dried up, you will need to help the little ones decorate their garden a little bit using markers.
