DIY Hand Towel Instructions

  1. Fold your towel and see where you want your handprint to be.

  2. Then unfold the towel and lay it on a flat surface.

  3. You or your child can then dip in the paint, or paint your hand. Lay the hand straight down, pressing the fingers and palm firmly to ensure the paint was transferred onto the towel.

    Pro Tip: If you paint your hand you can avoid a mess or dripping on the towel in unwanted areas by accident from having too much paint on your hand. 

  4. Remove the hand by lifting straight up, avoiding smudges.

  5. Next, with a paint brush, touch up the areas that need to be filled in more, and clean up the lines.

  6. Allow this to dry overnight, add a ribbon, and give an amazing and unique gift to someone special!
