Handprint flowers are a fantastic activity suitable for all ages, and in this blog post, we're excited to guide you through creating this delightful craft


  • Construction paper or cardstock - prepare in white and green colors
  • Glue (or glue dots)
  • Chenille stems in colors yellow or orange
  • Green-colored straws
  • A pair of scissors
  • Pencil


  1. Begin by tracing your child's hand on paper. We opted for white paper since Cala lilies are typically white, but feel free to get creative and use any color you like to make your flower unique!
  2. Grab some green paper and cut out several leaves in various shapes. You can make them long and narrow like grass blades or round and broad like traditional leaves.
  3. Take a chenille stem and cut it in half. Then, fold each half in half again.
  4. Then, take the ends of the chenille stems that we folded earlier and curl them gently.
  5. Take the folded corner of each chenille stem and carefully insert it into the mouth of a green straw.
  6. Take the hand cutout we made earlier and wrap it around a pencil to curl the fingers. Press the paper against the pencil and hold it for a few hours to help it curl easier.
  7. Carefully wrap the hand cutout around the straw, positioning it to resemble flower petals. Allow the glue to dry completely before handling or displaying your handprint flower.
  8. Take one or several of the leaves you previously cut out and attach them to the bottom of the handprint flower. Apply glue to the bottom of the flower and the top of the green straw, then carefully position the leaves in place.
  9. Finally, assemble your handmade flowers in a small, simple vase to display!
