Mother’s Day is a great day to make crafts. Every mom deserves a beautiful keepsake gift or card.

When it comes to baby gifts or DIY gifts in general, we love when they are both personal and useful and keychains are just that. This adorable keychain will be used for years to come.

How to Make a Shrinky Dinks Flower Hand Keychain

What you need:

  • Plastic shrinks
  • flower paint
  • green paint
  • yellow paint
  • paint brush
  • awl hole
  • Optional: clear sealing

We worked with acrylic paint, younger kids can also work with stamping ink.

Step-by-step instructions

Paint the palm in a floral color (we chose pink).

You can let your child press the paint or paint with a paintbrush. Let the paint dry for a while.

Paint the stem and leaves with yellow paint. You can also use your thumb to draw this.

Dip the tip of your finger (thumb is best) and press the middle of the handprint twice to form a heart shape.

Cut around the flower.

Punch a hole in the top with a hole punch.

Place in oven. Follow “baking” instructions on Shrinky Dinks Plastic.

Watch it roll and shrink…

Once the cake is straight, remove it from the oven and place it on a flat surface to cool.

To make sure the product would come straight out of the oven, we placed another layer of greaseproof paper on top of the key ring and placed a book on top when taking it out of the oven.
