handprint ornament

December 22, 2009

Isn’t this the cutest idea for a memorable ornament?!  Becky from Crafting Chicks posted the idea, and I knew I had to do it with my sweet Lucy Belle for her 1st Christmas.  I love the simplicity of something so sweet and memorable.

Materials: ball ornament, acrylic paint, paint brush

*Directions*

Find the perfect subject…

Paint the palm of her hand…

Spread those wee little fingers…

…and stamp the ornament (this did take me 2 tries, I’ll admit it)

Add her name and year…

Let dry on the ceiling fan cord (what, you have a better spot to dry ornaments?)

thanks for the idea, Crafting Chicks!
