Plaster of Paris Handprint Wallhanging

Contributed by Leanne Guenther

I typically do crafts from things you don't need to buy, but I've had so many people ask me how to make these, that I've broken down and added the directions.

Alternative:  Instead of a wallhanging, make a garden decoration.  Omit the ribbon hanger and spray the completed project with Acrylic spray.  Set it outside in the garden.  When you add decorations, use circle woodsies and organize them like a small caterpillar or paint them like a lady bug.

This craft goes well with a Handprint Poem.
