Every year I do handprint crafts so that I can see how much Olivia’s hands grow from year to year. Today we worked together to make an autumn wreath. I knew that I couldn’t possibly dip her hand in paint enough times to make a wreath, so we got a bit creative. I decided to trace her hand, just once, and then used it as a tracer to make a bunch more. After they were all cut out (I did this step when Olivia was sleeping), Olivia had fun sponge painting them with different fall colors. After the hands had dried, we glued them to a paper plate, to make the wreath somewhat sturdy and round. (I had cut the center out of the plate). For a finishing touch, we added a gold ribbon so that we could hang her wreath up as a fall decoration.
