Make your own snowman keepsake ornaments

Fun way to keep the memories of your little one(s) by placing their finger and thumb prints to make an ornament.

As parents we know that our little one(s) grow so fast, and at Christmas time I love pullin out last years ornaments to see how they have grown in a years time.

So this year for the tree we made snowman keepsake ornaments.

To make this ornament it is simple and very inexpensive.

Clear plastic ornament from your local craft store(Micheal's, Hobby Lobby, Joann's or A.C. Moore)
the price is $1.29 @ Micheal's and Joann's you can also use coupons to get it cheaper.
Acrylic paints
Sharpie market (black) I used this to make the snowman hat
Mod Podge or clear glaze spray to protect the outside.

I used the thumb for the base, pointer for the center and pinky for the face of the snowman.

This is a great craft to give as a gift to family members or for kids to make in the classroom.

  2. I love these ornaments and it's on our to do list for this year. Thank you so much for linking up to Tuesday Tots this week and just letting you know that I'm featuring this post over on Rainy Day Mum this week.

    1. Thanks so much, that means alot to me. Hope you guys enjoy the keeps as much as we do.

  3. I like to do ornaments similar to these with my students. They decorate the outside. I like to use fabric paints because they come with narrow tips. I take pictures of each child, print them on transparency sheets, and hang the pictures inside the ornaments. They are fun and easy gifts for parents.

    1. That sounds like fun, would love for you to share a picture. Please share I have a FB page if you are one there. Thanks for stooping by.
