101 Days of Christmas: Handprint Canvas

We made this handprint canvas last year for my Dad, and I think it's one of my favorite projects ever. It's really easy to do but, like the handprint calendar, makes a great keepsake to remember their little hands. Since we have four little ones, the spacing was easy, but you could do add words…
