Such a fun paper craft or keepsake gift for Mother's Day!
Using a pencil, trace one of your child's hands onto a green piece of card stock.
Cut the handprint out. Using a black marker, cover the handprint with small lines (needles) going in different directions.
For the flowers, cut a piece of tissue paper into a small rectangle that measures 2 x 3 inches. Make 1/2 inch cuts along the sides to create some fringe.
Twist the rectangle, gathering it in the center.
Holding the center, fold it in half so the fringe is all on one side and looks like flower petals.
Using a glue gun, attach a few flowers to the tips of the fingers of the cactus. Add as many or as few as you want.
Fill a small flower pot with some stones.
Insert the handprint cactus into the pot. Secure with hot glue.
Your handprint cactus is complete!
