DIY: Hand Print Canvas Keepsake

Pin It

I love little hand prints.

This handprint canvas kit from Red Envelope would make a great shower gift or child’s gift, and make a great keepsake for any parent.

You could track your growing child’s hand size by creating a hand print canvas every year or get the entire family involved and create a “hand print family tree.”

It’s only available in the colors seen here but the concept is so simple that you could assemble your very own hand print canvas kit at home {with canvases painted to match your decor}.

Things you’ll need:

- Plain canvases {the kit includes 10 x 10 canvases}
– Paint for the canvases and hand prints {nontoxic, water-based paints are best}
– Small foam rollers {one for each color, to apply the paint to those tiny little hands}

  1. What a great idea! I happen to have all the supplies on hand to do this. I smell a project coming on….. :-)

  2. This would be great with a foot print too! Love the idea!

  3. This is such a cute idea – love the bright colors!

    My friend had all the kids who were guests to her son’s first birthday party put their hand prints in various paint colors and leave their hand prints on a series of medium-sized canvases that spelled out her son’s name (Jack)- so that was four canvases, J on one, A on the next, etc. and the colors of the letters and the handprints coordinated with the colors of his nursery. Great party keepsake and room decor and party activity!
