Fingerprint Flower Bouquets For Mother’s Day


I always enjoy a good homemade gift, especially one from my daughter. This is probably the reason I have piles of her artwork from school that I can’t bear to part with. I also feel like displaying it as some art work makes it even more adorable and a little more special. With Mother’s Day coming up, I wanted to share some homemade artwork we created for the important ladies in their lives, the Fingerprint Flower Bouquet. I made this for them once before when Keira was 9-months old, but I thought an updated piece of art might be nice now that we have Roman too. It literally let’s them put their own personal touch into the gift. 🙂

Fingerprint Flower Bouquets For Mother's Day

This Fingerprint Flower Bouquet craft is easy and you probably have everything you need to do it right at home. We used white paper, paint and then I found some inexpensive frames (half off) on sale at the store. I love that their little fingers are forever frozen here and that the flowers will never die. It makes for a much better bouquet, in my opinion.

Then, I just gently pressed her fingers to the paper to form a flower shape. Her flowers are the pink and purple ones (her favorite colors, of course). With the baby, I first used his toes to make the orange flower because he was much pickier about letting me fully control a finger. But, I needed to get those little digits in too so I essentially arm wrestled him to press his little finger in for the yellow flowers buds.image1 (6)

Lastly, I used a paintbrush to dot out the flower middles and paint the stems. It was as simple as that and now my kids have a present for their grandmas, great-grandma and great-aunt. It took about 10 minutes total.

I don’t think they have to be perfect so don’t stress if your kids get paint in other areas. I like a little bit of imperfection in this type of sentimental gift. To me, the imperfection, the messy-little-kidness of it all, let’s them leave finger prints on your heart.
