Christmas is my favourite time of year to make crafts. I’ll be honest and say I go a bit craft crazy every year. Our favourite crafts are ornaments that you can display on your tree. I love seeing my crafts as a young child still hung on my parents Christmas tree. It reminds me of all our amazing holiday memories!
My go to ornament crafts are handprints! They in my opinion are the best because you can see the growth of your children through years. And what child doesn’t love to play with paint and make handprints? Yes it makes a mess but the fun they and yourself will have is priceless.
A very simple craft with the opportunity to be very creative. All you need is:
- Brown paint
- Two pipe cleaners
- Fuzzy red nose
- Googly eye
- Hole punch
As you can see from the picture you simply make the handprint. Add an eye, a nose. Make two hole punches; one above the thumb for the antler and one at the top of the paper to use a pipe cleaner to hold the ornament.
