Homemade Hand Print Molds!

Not so wordless Wednesday!  

Today we had a fun time making hand print molds with Aunt Shannon and baby Z.  This is a really inexpensive way to make a great keepsake! It is a tad messy but well worth it!  Here's how we did it:

1 cup flour
1 cup salt
1/2 cup water
Food coloring (optional)

In a medium size bowl mix the flour, salt, and water. Then add whatever color of food coloring you want.  

To prevent sticking, sprinkle a piece of foil with some flour. Separate your mixture into 2 parts. Depending on the size of your molds, you may have enough dough to do 3 molds. 

Use rolling pin to flatten each piece to about 1/2 in. thick. 

Lastly toss into the over and Bake 200 degrees for 1 to 2 hours, checking once for cracking. Make sure the mold is completely dry before trying to remove from the foil.     
Enjoy your new keepsake!


  1. So love this Kelly! Such a wonderful way to capture a time in our children's lives. Thanks so much for sharing! Blessings!

  2. Does the water need to be hot or cold before mixing together?

    1. We used warm water. I think hot would work too. Thank you for stopping by.
