I mentioned in Monday’s Shoot and Edit post that we pulled out the paints over the weekend to create more handprint art. I confess, I still had our son’s Christmas Tree plaque hanging so it was definitely time for a change. I found a wooden heart plaque at Michael’s and painted it white. Then with Trent’s help holding whichever hand we were painting, I put red paint on our son’s hand and helped him place it on the plaque to create a handprint heart.
After the paint had dried. I sealed it with Mod Podge just like our other plaques. On the back I added a picture hanger and used a Sharpie to jot his name, age and the date we made it.
A quick and easy art project. One I know I’ll treasure as the years go on and his little hands grow larger.
Supplies: wooden plaque; acrylic paints; brushes; Mod Podge; picture hanger.
