Handprint Snowman Christmas Tree Ornament

Rain, the About.com Guide to DIY Fashion, explains how her and her family makes keepsake ornaments using a glass ball ornament and a hand print!

  • Age Guideline: 3 Years and Up
  • Time Required: 30 minutes (Does not include drying time)

The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.

Materials Needed:

Every member of the family will have fun making these ornaments. Make it a tradition every year and you will be amazed at how much your kids' handprints grow.

Start out by painting the palm of one hand white. Grab the Christmas tree ball with the painted hand so that the palm is on the bottom of the ball and the fingers go up towards the hanger. Each finger will be a snowman so try to spread them out a little bit.

Hang up the ornament and let it dry and then you can add details using a marker. You can add dots for the eyes, nose, mouth, and buttons; and also draw arms. Don't forget to write the year on your ornament.
