This Handprint Flower Pot Craft is absolutely gorgeous with an array of colorful Fingerprint Flowers. So really, you don’t need a green thumb to make these flowers grow, but you do need your whole hand!
I’m not much of a gardener. I do, however, have a few flower pots that the kids like helping me grow flowers in. And while our little seedlings are starting to sprout, we’re envisioning how beautiful they’ll be with this darling handprint flower craft. And fingerprint craft, too.

This is such a sweet craft with very few supplies needed! For our Handprint Flower Pot Craft you will need green and brown lightweight cardstock or paper as well as orange and yellow, acrylic paint in a variety of bright colors, a glue stick, and scissors.
Handprint Flower Pot Craft
- Cardstock – brown, green, yellow, orange
- Acrylic paint – pink, purple, yellow, light blue, etc.
- Glue stick
Begin by tracing a handprint on green paper.
Make sure it’s on the edge of the paper, because now fold the paper in half.
And use the one handprint to cut out two handprints.
Also cut a rectangular strip from the width of the brown cardstock, about ⅓ of the page.
Glue the handprints with pinkies overlapping to the center of the base paper.
Fold the ends of the brown rectangle.
Apply gluestick to just the folded ends and form the rectangle around the handprints. So your pot is raised off the page.
Now, gather paint for the flowers. Dip a fingertip in the flower color and form circular, flower shapes along the handprints.
Continue with more colors until your flower pot is full.
You can make more flower pots with more colors if you’d like, too! So pretty!
