Handprint Placemat Gift for Grandma and Grandpa

Need a gift idea for Grandma and Grandpa? How about a set of personalized placemats and some new dishtowels and dishcloths? 

Handprint Placemat Gift for Grandma and Grandpa


  • 2 solid colored dark fabric placemats
  • newspaper
  • white fabric paint
  • paintbrush
  • Sharpie


Spread newspaper on your work surface, then spread one placemat on top of it. Use the paintbrush to coat your right hand evenly with white fabric paint. Press your hand firmly on the bottom right hand corner. 

Repeat the steps for the second placemat. Let the paint dry completely. 

Use a Sharpie to write Grandma on one handprint and Grandpa on the other. Bundle them up with coordinating dishcloths and dishtowels for a gift they're sure to love.
