First of all I  L*O*V*E  any craft that requires Connor’s handprint and I also love adding personalized ornaments to our Christmas tree every year.  So I knew I had to make this Santa Handprint ornament as soon as I saw it on Pinterest.

How many of you pinned this adorable ornament also?

Isn’t this Santa Handprint Ornament the cutest thing ever? I am so happy with how it turned out and I love that it is such a special keepsake!  They weren’t that hard to make at all. We used the clay that you bake in the oven, red paint for the hat, nose, and rosy cheeks, tan paint for the face, and a black sharpie for the lines.

And I think I now have a new tradition each Thanksgiving Eve: An ornament craft night. My friend Cindy came over Wednesday night with her two boys and we had so much fun making ornaments together. I do have to say that we did most of the work since our boys are only three and two but it was definitely worth the time it took to hand paint each ornament.

Next year we will definitely have ornaments that the kids can make themselves. But for now we have these adorable Santa handprint ornaments to hang on our tree that we will treasure for many years to come.

These ornaments truly mark a moment in time and to me that is the best thing a personalized ornament can do.
