These handprint plaques are a great keepsake as well as a great gift for grandparents.
Here is how to make these simple and cheap handprint plaque keepsakes:
Mix 1 1/2 cups salt and 4 cups flour in a large bowl. Gradually add about 1 1/2 cups of water(i used 2 cups) until dough forms a ball around the spoon.(I mixed with my hands).
Knead the dough with your hands until it looks right as seen above.
We wanted our plaques to be in circles/ovals so we just shaped them by hand.
Then place childs hand into the dough until their handprint remains. Attach a paperclip to the back of the dough.
Place them on a baking sheet.
Bake on 250 degrees in the oven for 30 minutes to an hour or until dry.
When done paint with acrylic and embellish as desired.
Let the paint dry then String ribbon through the paperclip to hang it up.
If you make this I’d love to see it! Leave the link in the comments section so others can see it as well.
