"Handprint Santa Ornaments"

Submitted by Erin Rogers of LA

These ornaments were made by my kids this year (which probably explains why they're special to me. My kids are ages 4 and 8. These will be special keepsakes when they are older; that I can look at and remember these sweet days with them.

Items needed:


Crayola plaster

Plastic straw

Craft paint




We rolled out the plaster and pressed their hands into it. Then I cut out around the handprints and made a hole in the top with a straw to hang it. They took 3 or 4 days to dry. 


After drying, we painted the red hats and drew the details. The mustaches and beards don't look quite like the picture I was going by, but it's the memories that we made that count! :)
