DIY Sparkling Rainbow Fish Handprint Puppets Materials

How to:

Step 1: Use a piece of recycled cardboard to trace the handprints. We used a top flap of a cardboard box. Use a sharpie to trace the handprints and the scissors to cut them out.

Step 2: Use the acrylic paint and sponge brush to paint the cut outs. I used Folk Art Acrylic Pants. Allow to fully dry before going to the next step.

Step 3: Decorate your DIY Sparkling Rainbow Fish Handprint Puppets. Start by choosing the color sequins and raindrop-shaped sticker rhinestones you want to use. Using the hot glue gun, start gluing on the sequins to the fingers of the handprints. There is no proper way to do this, and every fishy will be unique. This is what makes this project so fun! Just be careful not to burn your fingers with the hot glue.

  1. Superb blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are
    so many options out there that I’m totally overwhelmed ..

    Any ideas? Thanks!

  2. Great goods from you, man. I have understand your stuff previous
    to and you are just too magnificent. I really like
    what you have acquired here, certainly like what you are stating and the way in which you say it.
    You make it entertaining and you still take care of to keep it wise.
    I can’t wait to read far more from you. This is really a
    great site.

  3. Hey! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for
    this site? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress
    because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform.
    I would be great if you could point me in the
    direction of a good platform.

  4. Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you
    know a few of the pictures aren’t loading correctly.
    I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
    I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the same outcome.

  5. I am really loving the theme/design of your web site.

    Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems?

    A handful of my blog readers have complained
    about my site not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great
    in Opera. Do you have any ideas to help fix this issue?
