Do you love monsters as much as we do? I hope so, because these Furry Fork Painted Monster Hands are so, SO fun! I’m super excited to share them with you, because I absolutely love how they turned out!
Whether it’s Halloween or any afternoon just because, there’s still nothing better than cute and fuzzy monsters. I traced my handprint to make ours, but the kids could trace theirs instead. A bigger hand, though, just means more room for furry fork painting.

To make our Furry Fork Painted Monster Hands you will need white paper, acrylic paints, black paper, a black marker, a fork, and scissors.
Use Fork Painting to Make Furry Monster Hands
- White paper
- Acrylic paints – variety of colors
- Black paper
- Black marker
Begin by using the black marker to trace your handprint on white paper.
To make sure you have plenty of room for fork painting, with distinction between the fingers, the fingers should be spread fairly far apart.
This is also why an adult hand is ideal, but the kids’ handprint I’m sure would be cute, too.
Spread your furry base paint color on a flat surface. We used a paper plate. Two colors work best, the base color and then a highlight color. Dip the tines of the fork in the paint and stamp across the handprint.
Use the tips of the fork to further spread the paint. Try not to completely cover the black handprint lines.
Then, do the same in just a few spots with a second color.
Before the paint dries, cut 5 triangles from the black paper.
Place the triangles at the tips of the fingers for fingernails. If the paint is dry, you can glue on instead.
Once dry, you can go back over the black lines if needed with the black marker. You can also draw in knuckle lines.
What color monster are you feeling like today? They’re all cute! I love how the green turned out kind of witchy, too, and the blue reminds me of Sully from Monsters Inc. And, be sure to check out all of our fun Halloween crafts for kids at Our Kid Things!
