Make a cute handprint wreath with some paper and glue!




  1. Download and print the wreath base pattern from below on regular copy paper. This will be the wreath base so it needs to be sturdy. Use cardboard, thick cardstock, or posterboard and trace the heart template on it.handprint craft wreath
  2. Cut out the traced heart base with scissors.making handprint wreath
  3. To make the wreath Valentine's themed, select different shades of pink and red craft paper for the handprints. Older children might be able to trace their own hands, but an adult will probably have to help younger kids by tracing around their hands with a pencil. The number of paper handprints needed will depend on the size of the hand! Cut out all the hands out of paper (this is a fun way to practice hand-eye coordination!)handprint wreath tutorial
