This is one of the easiest ways how to make a diy rustic home decor ! It’s a great gift idea for Mother’s Day, Grandparents Day, birthdays or Christmas !
Piece of wood (any size or shape you like)
White paint (or another color of your liking is fine too)
Stain (if needed or desired)
Paint brush if using stain
First, get your piece of wood. For a genuine rustic looking plaque, getting a piece of an old barn would work great ! If you go this route I wouldn’t stain or paint it unless you really want to. If not, just dip the bottom of your kids hands into the paint. Making sure to let the excess drip off. Place the hand where you want it, and push down gently for a few seconds.
If you can’t do the barn method for wood, than you can go buy a piece of plywood, paint, and stain at your local Lowe’s or Home Depot.
If you are going to stain the wood, do so now and let dry completely.
Next, open your paint and get your kiddos.
Dip the bottom of your kids hands into the paint, and let the excess drip off.
Gently push the hands with paint on them onto the wood, and hold in place for a few seconds. Make sure to push down each finger.
That’s how to make DIY easy rustic home decor !
