Mom to Mom: Handprint Tulip Towels

(41NBC/WMGT) —  Today on Mom To Mom, we have an easy, yet adorable Mother’s Day gift.

Handmade gifts are always welcome for Mother’s Day. So today we are making hand print tulip towels. All you’re going to need are some tea towels, which you can get at a craft store, Amazon or Walmart, some fabric paint, some toilet paper rolls, some paint brushes, and a permanent marker.

So first we’re going to start with the tea towel. We’re going to make sure it’s nice and flat. Then you’re going to take your kid’s hand and paint it. Then we’re going to press it right onto the tea towel. Gently lift the kids’ hand up off the tea towel. If there’s some spots that didn’t really take, that’s okay. You can fill it in with a paint brush. Now you want to make the stem. And if you feel like your kids are going to mess it up, you can always paint the stem for them. Now onto the toilet paper rolls.  So you’re going to take the green paint and put it on a plastic area, then you’re going to dip the paper roll into the paint. Once you have it dipped in the paint, you’re going to squeeze it into the shape of a leaf, and then you’re going to press it onto the stem. Once you pull that off, you can fill it in or your kids can fill it in. Just have fun with it. Then have the kids personalize it a little bit. I suggest having them write their name on a piece of paper, and then you trace it on to the tea towel for them how they wrote their name in a Sharpie. It looks like they wrote it on there and it’s easy all the way around.

These are great for grandmas, the moms, or anyone who the kid has a personal relationship with too!
