DIY Handprint Keepsake Flower Pot

Materials needed:

  • Clay flower pot
  • Acrylic paint
  • Paintbrushes
  • Pencil
  • Clear acrylic sealer in gloss or matte

Optional materials:

  • Potting Soil
  • Flowers
  • Plant - indoor, outdoor or succulent
  • Seed packet

How to:

  1. Trace your child's hands onto the flower pot. 
  2. Help your child paint the flower pot and hand prints. 
  3. Once the paint has dried, I would suggest spraying the flower pot with a clear acrylic sealer that would allow the flower pot to get wet without the paint fading or washing off. 
  4. Optional:  Plant flowers or a plant in the pot for a finishing touch..

Keep or give as a gift!
