'Tis The Season Thursday *Giveaway* Closed!

The perfect handmade (literally) gift for Grandparents.
I got this idea from Erin at Home Grown Hearts.

Handprint snowman ornaments.
  • Clear glass ball ornaments
  • white acrylic paint
  • sponge brush
  • paint pens in black, orange and a color of your choice.
Step 1: Paint your child's hand white.

Step 2: Have your child grab the ball.  Don't worry if the fingers don't come out perfect.

Step 3: Hang and let dry ( I should have mentioned that I attached the ribbons before we started).

Step 4: Use the paint pens draw on hats, scarves, eyes, carrot noses, mouths and buttons.

Erin also has a really cute poem to go with these.  So you can pop over to Home Grown Hearts and get it to make tags with.
 Link up your holiday posts below.  Anything from recipes to decor, gifts to devotionals.  I look forward to reading about your family's traditions.
I just know that you would love to see some more cute handmade snowman things.

I think those are so adorable, I want to try this with Selena. While you are talking clear bulbs, my neice told me about a cute craft idea. She took clear bulbs and stuffed them with the crinkly paper, put the top back on and they made adorable ornaments.

Ok, we made the snowmen ornaments, although we had to use red and gold ornaments instead of clear. But they still turned out really cute! I was scared at first because I had to wipe off the ornaments our first few tries, what with bad smearing, but they are so cute! Thanks for this idea!
