Handprint Flower Welcome Sign
Although the snowy weather is not exactly screaming “spring” time in Wyoming just yet – I’m pulling out this welcome sign Lil Man & I made a few weeks ago and displaying it proudly in my home. I’m taking it as my gentle clue to spring to hurry up! We are cold in Cheyenne 😉
For me, nothing screams springtime more than fresh flowers in bright, pastel colors. So that’s exactly the theme of today’s latest kids craft tutorial from us.
Using some paint and my son’s hands, I turned handprints into flowers for a festive canvas decor. Adding the words “welcome” to it, made it perfect to hang on our front door. I also like to think the handprints are waving “hi” at our guests as they approach the door.
If this is something you want to do with your child this season, below is everything you need to make your own “Handprint Spring Welcome Sign” within minute today! I promise you, it’s super simple once you get started!

- First I stenciled/painted “welcome” onto the canvas. After I was done, there were a few spots I didn’t like and I felt like it didn’t stand out as much as I wanted it to. So I took a sharpie and outlined the letters.
- Next were the handprints. For this, I just painted my son’s hands and had him press them on the canvas.
- To finish off the canvas, I painted on details like a stem for the flowers, as well as grass and other little details on the bottom.
- To display easily the handprint spring canvas, I hot glued ribbon to the back. I added my son’s name/age on the back with a marker.
And of course you can leave the “welcome” off and just make some flower artwork with your child. This painted canvas idea would also make a great Mother’s Day gift – hint hint!
