FolkArt® Products Required

  • Your choice of opaque fabric paint colours - there are so many to choose from!

Example of DIY hand-printed apronSupplies

  • Plain apron (we used a plain white apron but you can also buy plain aprons in hot pink, lime green, aqua blue, bright red, and black).


  • Some plastic picnic plates for the paint.
  • Soap and water for washing up afterwards.


  • Pour a small amount of fabric paint onto the plates - enough to cover the bottom.
  • Assist kids to place one hand surface, lightly palm-down, onto paint surface.
  • Have the children place their hand-print on the front of the apron (grouped together looks best).
  • Repeat the process until the apron front is sufficiently decorated with hand-prints.
  • You can add names and dates to each palm print with a fine-tip fabric signature marker.
