I do love a good handprint craft don’t you? They are adorably cute and make such super keepsakes to goo and gah over in years to come when our precious babies are all grown up! These little Handprint Love Birds are the sweetest, or should I say tweetest little bird craft around and just perfect for Valentine’s Day or even Mother’s Day.
There’s a free printable template so making them is super simple and it comes with three different heart messages to add to your love bird craft. All the messages have a sweet/ tweet word play on them. Too tweet for words!
You can stick your handprint love birds onto greeting cards or turn them into puppets. Either way they are adorable!

Love Bird Step By Step Instructions
1 – Before you can start your handprint love bird craft you’ll need to print out our free template. Grab yours at the bottom of this post.
2 – Cut out your template pieces and draw around them onto coloured card. We used a range of pinks, reds and purples for the bird bodies and wings and bright yellow for the bird beaks and feet.
3 – Your love bird craft is made around a handprint base so draw around your hand onto coloured card and cut it out.
4 – Turn your handprint into a cute love bird by glueing on the beak, feet, wings and googly eyes.
5 – Choose one of the three printable heart messages to stick in the middle of your handprint love bird.
6 – You can either glue your handprint love bird craft onto a folded greeting card or glue on a jumbo straw to turn it into a cute stick puppet.
I’m sure you’ll agree that as greeting cards or as puppets these little lovebirds are the TWEETEST!
