Family Handprint Canvas

Family Handprint Canvas

Family Handprint Canvas is a fun craft for the whole family that overlaps each member's handprint with another.

This easy decoupage craft shows off your family's uniqueness, so make sure it really represents that sentiment. When your kids grow up, they will marvel at the difference of their hand size compared to the one on the canvas. Treasure your family moments forever with this lovely wall art.
