So, today’s crafts is a little bit unusual but there is actually a little story behind it. Almost a year ago now my niece and I were out shopping and she spotted this adorable tea cup planter with some flowers in it. She absolutely loved it and really wanted to buy it for her mum. Unfortunately though I didn’t have my purse with me. So, I said how about we make our own crafty version for you to give to mum? Anyway as it so often does with kids, the whole thing got forgotten – until a couple of days ago. She came over for the day as her parents were working and out of the blue she suddenly remembered it! So here is our cute little handprint flowers and teacup craft!

You will need

  • Coloured paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • pencil

Alternatively if you don’t want to make your teacup from scratch, why not print and colour our free printable teacups?

How to make our handprint flowers and teacup craft.

First you’ll need to cut out the basic shapes for your teacup. To make the saucer we cut out a circle from half a piece of paper, we then cut out a rectangular piece (approximately 25cm x 9cm) for the cup itself and a small rounded off strip for the handle.

Fold a small 1-2cm strip along the bottom of your large rectangle. Then, make several small equally spaced snips along this strip so that they just touch the fold line. These will be your tabs to glue down your teacup.

Glue one end of your teacup rectangle and then secure it to the other end to give you your round teacup shape. Then use the folded tabs that you just cut to glue the cup on to the saucer. Finish your teacup by gluing on your handle as you can see in the picture above.

Now to make the flowers! Place little one’s hand on to a green piece of paper, then draw around it and cut it out. Decorate each fingertip with some paper flowers.

Finally, finish off your cute handprint flowers and teacup craft by decorating your teacup and then gluing your flowers inside of it. Doesn’t it look cute? This little craft is perfect for gifting for birthdays, mothers day or valentines day!
