Handprint Wreath


This easy “wreath” to adorn a door or fridge makes a wonderful keepsake, since you’ll be capturing the size of your child’s hand. Consider making one every few years to keep a record!

Adults only: Cut the center from a paper plate, leaving the rim intact; set aside.

Trace your child’s hand on green or red construction paper. You can then use this hand as the template, and cut out as many more hands as you need to march around the rim of your plate.


Travis has been very into tracing lately, so this was his favorite part of the project. He also thought his red hands looked like the stop hands at traffic signals.


We then smeared glue all around the rim of our plate, and I asked Travis to help me arrange the hand prints, though to be honest, his interest faded for this part.


We glued on three small red circles to be “berries” as the finishing touch.


Happy decorating!
