Hand print Snowman Ornament- Instructions to Make Yours Today!

Hand Print Snowman Ornaments

Hand Print Santa Ornament

What You Need:

White Paint

Black Paint

Orange Paint

Solid Colour Ornament

What You Do:

Squeeze the white craft paint onto a paper plate and dip your hand (or your childs) into the paint, ensuring to cover the entire hand.

Place the ornament into the palm of your hand, ensuring that you hold fingers out straight not touching the ornament.

Slowly close your fingers around the ornament.

Grasp the top of the ornament and slowly open your hand, slowly lift the ornament.

Allow ornament to dry. (Use an egg carton to position it so it doesn’t get ruined)

Once the white paint has dried, use the different colours to give the snowmen faces, arms, buttons, hats and a carrot nose… You could even add a scarf… whatever your little heart desires.

TIP: If you and your children are doing this together, use a black sharpie on the bottom of the ornament where the palm touched to write their name and the year!

This ornament is so much fun to make and looks great on your tree! You could also make a whole bunch and give them to friends and family as gifts that they can treasure every year!

    This is a super cute idea! My daughters love making ornaments so we might have to try this. I like the way that it makes a memory for years to come! Thanks for sharing. 🙂

    Ooh, that craft is entirely cute and special, I love it! What a great gift idea too! Ornaments in our family always need to have a story behind each and every one of them, and these would be perfect for this year! 🙂
