All you need to get started with this craft is some blank canvases, paint, a paintbrush, paper plates, and little hands!

How To Make A DIY Halloween Hand Print Canvas!

The first step is to paint your blank canvas in a color of your choice, we went with purple and orange for our background colors. Allow them to fully dry before moving on to the next step.

The next step is all of my children’s favorite part… get their hands in the paint! If you have a toddler, you can also do a footprint since they have smaller feet.

Figure out what you want to create with your and print first. We decided on a spider (made with two hand prints) and a ghost made with my toddler’s foot print.
