My Lucky Charm

At Halloween time before I started this blog I made these cute "ghosts" with my kids hand/foot prints.


Then this morning I was driving along thinking how I could do something similar for St. Patty's. It did not turn out exactly how I pictured in my mind, in part to my 9 month old refusing to open his hand flat (it might be easier with a toddler or school aged child) but I see a lucky 4 leaf clover, don't you?


I just took a blank wooden plaque I got on clearance at the craft store, drilled two holes in the top, painted it light green, then smudged white and silver paint on with a paper towel after it dried, and sanded it real quick. Then I painted his hand and put it down on the board fingers facing to the middle of the board, do this 4 times around, then paint the side of his or your hand and place it at the bottom like the stem. And you have a cute lucky charm :o)

We like to do hand print things at our house too. And my 3 year old is definitely the most cooperative!
Here is a link to one we did for Valentine's Day, nothing too new, but the grandparents sure did like it.

Oh! And I am stopping by from the Mingle with Us blog hop!

I think it came out awesome!! I love little handprint crafts. I have a plate that my son made for me in preschool when he was two, it's my most prized possession.
