As you can see in the picture some of the hand prints are a bit smudged, I worked hard with Cakes to get as many prints as I could. We made enough to make three wreaths, one for our house and one for each of her Grandmothers. I learnt a trick to getting hand prints from Cakes's Aunty Teen (she has been a nursery teacher for the last decade) right after we completed this piece of art. She suggests after you paint the baby's hand to give it a tickle in the middle and then print, this helps them open it wide to get a better print.
Once all the prints are complete and you get a spare minute (I know hard with a baby around), cut out all the hand prints (if you can laminate them it will preserve them for years to come). Cut the inside out of a paper or plastic plate and staple the little hand prints all the way around with a little overlap. Add a bow and hang on the door. Perfect!!
