Homemade Christmas Ornaments: Handprints

Submitted by Erin Rogers of Louisiana

Handprint santa ornaments

"Handprint Santa"

These ornaments were made by my kids this year (which probably explains why they're special to me. My kids are ages 4 and 8. These will be special keepsakes when they are older; that I can look at and remember these sweet days with them.

Items needed:

Crayola plaster
Plastic straw
Craft paint


We rolled out the plaster and pressed their hands into it. Then I cut out around the handprints and made a hole in the top with a straw to hang it. They took 3 or 4 days to dry.

After drying, we painted the red hats and drew the details. The mustaches and beards don't look quite like the picture I was going by, but it's the memories that we made that count! :)
