Crafting Christmas ornaments you will cherish and the kids will LOVE!
My daughter and I love to get creative… and get messy! There is something so special about creating holiday ornaments. We often give these adorable gifts to family members as well. We have some great kits available in store and online, but I’ve included some of my favorite DIY ideas below!

DIY SNOWMEN HAND PRINT ORNAMENT
Capture your little one’s hand print in this adorable ornament. Purchase ornament balls, glass or plastic. (PLEASE use caution when using glass ornaments!) Cover your child’s hand in white acrylic paint and have them GENTLY grasp from the bottom of the ornament. Add some dots of white paint as snowfall. Allow pain to dry thoroughly. Then use a marker to make eyes and mouth. Create the nose by either gluing a piece of orange paper or using an orange marker. Glue cute scarves or hats made of felt, fabric or pipe cleaners to finish them off. SNOW CUTE!
This kit is a classic keepsake to adorn your Christmas tree for years to come. Turn your child’s handprint into cute little snowmen if you wish. Makes a great gift for baby’s first Christmas or a fun holiday craft to do with kids.
We are in LOVE!!! The most precious mistletoe you will ever have! This kit includes red frame (4.25 x 5.25), paper insert with glitter, mess-free ink pad, ribbon, and holly sticker.
DIY FROSTED COOKIE CUTTER
This may have been one of the easiest and cutest ornaments we have ever made!!! Purchase a few metal cookie cutters in whatever shape. Pour some white acrylic paint on a paper plate. Have your child place the cookie cutter in the paint then simply turn it over and place on a paper towel or scratch piece of paper and let the paint drip. Add some glitter while it’s drying to give it some sparkle. Once dry, add a ribbon… and DONE! We also hung a sparkly bead in the middle of this snowflake.
Kit includes an air-dry marshmallow clay that your child will be able to use to make a hand print ornament that they can re-hang on your Christmas tree for many years. Contents of package includes: Non-toxic marshmallow clay, rolling pin, 4.5 x 5.5 round cookie cutter, ribbon, hole punch, non-toxic child-safe glue, and glitter.
DIY LEGO ORNAMENT
Let your little builder create something special! Purchase plastic ornaments that open to capture his/her creation! Add some glue drips and white glitter dust to mimic snow. Tie a ribbon to hang. MY NEPHEW MADE THIS FOR HIS DAD A FEW YEARS AGO… MY BROTHER NEARLY CRIED!!!
HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE IDEAS! GET THAT CREATIVITY FLOWING… HAVE SOME FUN, GET MESSY, CREATE SOME LASTING MEMORIES AND ADORABLE ORNAMENTS!!!
