Craft: Handprint Snowman Ornaments
Original post: Dec 9th, 2011 | Author: Rockin' Momma
I saw these ornaments last year and made sure I saved the idea. They are going to make great grandparent gifts! They are so easy and turn out cute!
Here’s what you need:
glitter paint, optional
ornament- make sure it's a shatterproof one!
paint pens, Sharpies or other paints for decorations
Clear Coat Spray Paint
Pour white paint onto paper plate Paint your child’s hand white with a foam brush Have your child hold the ornament, being careful not to move fingers After the paint has dried, decorate your snowmen Spray with Clear Coat
To put his hand print on the ornament I found it easiest to have him open his hand after I painted it and I would place the bulb in the palm and then have him slowly close his fingers and then I pushed each on done. Then I’d tell him to open his hand real fast.
This is make shift holder, to hold the ornaments as they dried. This card board came out of a package that I had received that I pulled out of my recycling bin. I used a pen to poke the holes and then stuck markers in to slid the bulbs on to dry. Any kind of box should work.Don’t forget to put the name and the year on the ornament too! I’ve seen them decorated with scarfs and other fun snow items.
