I found this absolutely adorable idea over at ‘Meet the Dubiens’ (a very gorgeous blog).
It would be an understatement to say that I am obsessed with DIY children’s Christmas Baubles! I love opening my decorations each year and oohing and ahhing over their tiny hand/thumb/finger prints! It is just so special! I hope to pass these ornaments down to them when they have children : ) We have all the links to our other gorgeous Christmas Ornaments at the bottom of this post : )
To make your own you will need:
Glass or Plastic ornaments (we got ours from Spotlight but I have also seen them at a few $2 shops)
White paint (we used acrylic)
An adorable thumb
Let’s start on the ‘Snowman’.
Paint your child’s thumb with the paintbrush (I find this method much easier and more importantly less messy!). Let the print dry completely.
Make two thumbprints one above the other (I re-painted the thumb in between prints).
Using your black Sharpie, draw on the Snowman’s hat, mouth & eyes.
Using an orange Sharpie, draw on the snowman’s adorable carrot nose.
Draw on the Snowman’s scarf & little buttons!
Now for the ‘Penguin’.
Again, paint the adorable thumb & allow the print dry completely.
Using your black sharpie, draw on the penguins ‘hair.
Draw on the wing markings to the penguins chest.
Dot on the eyes and draw on his cute little wings.
Using an orange sharpie, draw on the beak and happy feet ; )
They are just so cute!
