Oh my goodness! One of the sweetest bouquet of flower handprint crafts I've ever seen! Love this. I'm doing this for Mother's Day!

  • You’ll probably use one foam yellow sheet per child
  • Trace the same hand 6-8 times
  • Leave an approximately 3-inch square without a handprint for the circle that will go into the middle of the sunflower

  • Cut the handprints and your 3-inch circle out of the foam
  • Begin to fan them around, with at least 3 on the first layer, adding more handprints on top for more dimension
  • Once you are satisfied with the shape of the handprints, glue them together with a low temp. glue gun or tacky glue
  • Finally, finish with gluing the circle you have cut out onto the center of the handprints

  • Kids can help attach the seeds to the 3-inch circle with glue
  • While you wait on the glue to dry, begin wrapping the dowels

For Tall Stems like a Sunflower would have…

  • When you get almost to the end of your dowel –  overlap 2 dowels end to end, like the picture above – this makes the stems taller
  • Just keep wrapping the tape around the 2 dowels, and continuing on down the second one 
  • If you’re thoroughly confused – take a look at the first image in this post to see where my dowels get a little thick in the middle. That’s where I added the second one for added length. I prefer the sunflowers tall. They look so pretty in a vase
