  4. Take one handprint and lay it fingers up on the table.
  5. Next then lay two others on top of it at a slight outward angle stick them together using super tacky glue.
  6. Repeat with the other two and then place the final hand at the top to create the top of the palm leaf.
  7. Once these are dry take 3 wooden craft sticks and stick one as a handle then the next directly above it to steady the rest of the palm leaf, then place the third joining the two sticks together to create a long wooden stick, make sure these are stuck on well.
  8. Once completely dry you can lift your palm leaf and turn it over.
