Craft a Handprint Easter Lily

by Freebies4Mom on March 12, 2008 3:44 pm

One of the best parts about Craft Week is learning about all of the crafting that my readers have been up to! One of my readers, Sunshine, was kind enough to share this craft using your child’s handprint to make beautiful paper lilies. What a perfect gift this would make for Easter or Mother’s Day! You can get directions to make your own Handprint Lilies at the DLTK’s website.
Sunshine offers a few tips that she learned after making the ones shown in these photos:

* Use cardstock in several pretty colors instead of construction paper (but not too thick!)
* Green floral tape makes the straws look more like real stems
* Pick up a vase at the Dollar Store
Thank you for sharing this wonderful craft using our child’s handprint, Sunshine!
Update: Here is the poem, it seems to not be showing up in the directions for some reason, but it comes from DLTK’s website.
This isn’t just a lily as you can plainly see.
I made it with my hand which God made a part of me.
It comes with lots of love especially to say,
I hope you have a very, special Mother’s Day!
If doing it with a secular group (school, etc) substitute “which is a part of me” for “which God made a part of me” If doing it for Easter, substitute “special Easter Day” for “special Mother’s Day”

Thanks for asking, Kristie! I don’t see the poem showing up anymore in the directions, but I just posted what Sunshine emailed me that was the poem she got along with the directions. Enjoy!

It looks like there is a poem attached to the vase. Any idea what it says or where it is from?

This is so cute! I think we’ll do these for Mother’s Day for the grandmothers. I’ve been collecting those plastic Crystal Lite containers and they’d make great vases for these, I’ll bet!Thanks for sharing.

I do this with my childcare kids. But I use the foam paper and put a yellow pom-pom in the middle. We make them for Mother’s Day and Mommy’s birthday. When I have a bother and a sister making them at the same time. I due the girls in pink and the boys in boy. The parents just love them. I have also sprayed the with different scents to make them smell good.
