There is nothing better than a handprint ornament. It is an easy craft you can make with your kids and it is also an ornament to treasure year after year. Pulling out those sentimental ornaments is one of my favorite parts of the holiday. This one was originally posted as part of my paid design team status on Crafts Unleashed. It is also kicking off Craft Lightning week! Every day this week I am sharing holiday posts that take 15 minutes or less to make. You can scroll down to the bottom of this post to see the crafts from our blog partners for this series as well.
Supplies needed to make a handprint ornament:
Some links below may be affiliate links which means that you do not pay anymore however a portion of your purchase will go to support this site.
- Black Disc Ornament
- White Craft Paint
- Red Craft Paint
- Hot Glue and Glue Gun
- Assorted Pom Poms
- Google Eyes
- Holiday Ribbon
- Round Sponge Brush
Using a black ornament makes this project extra quick. Just grab the hand of your little one, paint on some white paint, and press their hand to the front of the ornament. Allow this to dry completely before continuing.
You will want to add some red for Santa’s hat now. Just use your pouncer brush and carefully follow the outline of the hand. Add red to just the top most portion.
Allow that to dry completely then add on google eyes, a red pom pom, and a white pom pom with hot glue.
String your ornament with some fun Christmas ribbon and hang on your tree. You can also give this one as a gift. Everyone loves a handprint ornament at the holidays.
