This adorable handprint flower pot art is so simple to make and is a perfect keepsake to gift for birthdays, Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day and many other occasions!
Here’s what you will need
How to make our handprint flower vase art
Start by drawing around little one’s hand and then cutting out 3-5 handprints from your different coloured paper.
Next cut out an equal amount of green paper stems to match the amount of handprint flowers. Glue the stems onto the back of the flowers. Then glue the flowers down onto your paper with all the stems directing towards the middle of the page
Cut out the shape of your flower pot and add any extra decoration you would like. We used some ribbon to make a bow on ours! Glue the flower pot down at the bottom of your page across the stems.
Finish off by adding a few paper leaves and any optional extra message and your picture is done and ready to display once dry! Don’t these look adorable?
Cut out several equal sized strips from the coloured card. You’ll probably need at least 6 plus to make a long enough snake.
Create a loop with your first strip and then continue paper chaining your strips until you reach your desired length
Now it’s time to make the head! You’ll want the head to be the same on both sides so the easiest way is to take a piece of card and fold it in half. From the fold line draw a tab to chain with and then add the shape of the head. Once you’re happy with your shape go ahead and cut it out.
Cut out a tongue and glue it down on the bottom side of the head. Add two googly eyes and any extra details then thread the head through the chain and glue together at the mouth as you can see above.
Finally we need to add the tail! Cut out a long thin triangle and glue it around the tail to finish your snake!
We just love paper crafts, they’re often simple and inexpensive and this cute paper snail craft didn’t disappoint! my snail obsessed son had so much fun making and playing with his own paper snails – they also look fab in his room too!

How to make this cute paper snail craft
Take the coloured card that you be using to make the snails shell and cut out a strip from each. The strips should be equal width but varying lengths, each of ours were 2cm apart in length to give us strips of 12cm, 14cm, 16cm and 18cm.
Take the strips and glue them together at one end…
Then glue the other ends of the strips together to make a rainbow like shape.
Take the two ends and glue them together to create the circular shell.
Next take the card that you will be using to make the body of the snail. Cut out a strip the same width as the shell strips. Round off one end with Scissors to make the snails tail and then cut two little stalks on the other end, before attaching an eye to each stalk.
Fold a small section near the eyes to make the head. Finish off your cute paper snail by gluing the snails shell onto the body, aren’t these just the cutest!

How to make our tp roll snail craft.
Cut out a strip of coloured card the same height as the tp roll and long enough to cover it. Glue the card around the roll.
Cut out 5 strips of paper, they should be roughly equal in width but varying length. We initially cut ours to them same length and then dropped them by Two cm each time to give us strips that were 20cm, 18cm,16cm,14cm and 12cm.
Line up and glue all of the strips together at one end.
then line up and glue together the other end of the strips.
Stick the two ends of strips together to make the circular snail’s shell. then attach the shell at one end of the tp roll.
Finally take a pipe cleaner and fold it in half to make a v shape. Glue the folded end of the pipe cleaner into the top inside of the tp roll and then add a Googly eye onto each end of the pipe cleaner. Add some glue around the inside of the head end of the roll and then pinch it together to seal it. Once dry your cute tp roll snail craft is finished!
