This fingerprint Christmas ornament is perfect to make with those little ones. Use two thumbprints to make a reindeer that you will be able to remember fondly year after year. I love filling my tree with special ornaments that bring a smile to my face when I pull them out during the holidays. I decided to do a few with my grandson this year and this one was on the top of my list. This post is sponsored by Elmer’s however all projects and opinions are my own.
Supplies needed to make your own fingerprint Christmas ornament:
- White ornament
- Brown craft paint
- Elmer’s Paint Pens (in black and red)
- Elmer’s Craft Glue
- Red Pom Pom
Start by dipping their little thumbs into brown craft paint and adding thumbprints to the ornament as shown below. Smaller children will definitely need help with this portion. You might even want to do with during a baby’s nap! Allow this to dry completely before continuing.
Use the Elmer’s black paint pen with a fine tip to draw on antlers, legs, a tail and eyes. Just free hand it yourself or let older kids draw it on themselves. One of the benefits of the Elmer’s paint pens it is paint but it is just like using a marker. I love them for kid’s crafts!
Use Elmer’s craft glue to add on the pom pom. Allow to dry completely.
Turn your ornament and use the Elmer’s red paint pen with a fine tip to add the name and year. Allow to dry completely.
Hang your new ornament on your tree! I love how this fingerprint Christmas ornament turned out! It is the perfect addition to any tree.
You can make these with kids that are big or small. Get them into the Christmas spirit by adding these fun ornaments to your tree this holiday season. They will love making a fingerprint Christmas ornament of their very own!
