Here's the ornaments we made last year. It seems that everyone in internet land made them last year, but I actually got the idea from my sister who made them the previous year. These are so adorable and I'm so happy I made them while my kids were small. Last Christmas Cam was just turning 1 and Kirsten was 2 1/2. These ornaments will be fantastic keepsakes for when my kids are older and I'm going to display these ornments on my tree every year. Now because I have a white/silver theme to my tree, I made these on silver balls. I didn't like the paint pens that I bought. They were hard to work with, took forever to dry and ran like crazy. So, the snowmen don't look fabulous, but I still love them nonetheless. Here's how we made them:
What you'll need:
1. paint your child's hand white
2. have them grasp the ornament from the bottom, kind of holding it in their palms and press their fingers against the side of the ornament
3. allow to dry
4. using the paint pens, decorate the fingers to look like snowmen and allow to dry.
5. I wrote my child's name, date and age on the bottom to always remember when they were made.
