Fingerprint Hearts

When we found this box canvas in Riot Art and Craft, we were inspired to do something special. We initially did this as a Valentine’s Day activity, but it could just as easily work for Mother’s Day or even a birthday.

Our finished result has pride of place in our lounge as it just looks fantastic!
In actual fact, without the box, you could even send this to someone special who lives far away!

You will need:

  • Baby wipes
  • Paint tray or similar
This mini canvas cost less that $5!
