This year I’m thinking of creating a DIY memorable christmas ornament that we can hang every year.

Methods:
I ask little A to paint his entire hand using white paint and brush

Then I carefully put the ornament in his palm leaving his fingers flat.
Next is we slowly closed his fingers around the ornament while I am holding the top ornament,after few seconds I asked him to open his finger so I can lift the ornament from his hand.
Once dry, I used sharpie markers to draw accents i.e. arms, eyes, hat, etc.

Note:  Don’t press too hard or the paint will come off.

I wrote little A’s name and year on the bottom so we know when it was done.

Verdict: I loved it and i am pleasantly surprised how easy it was.
