Handprint Snowman Ornaments-I love this time of year, and all things Christmas! It’s a special time that people seem to slow down a bit (when it doesn’t come to shopping that is) and really appreciate  your family and friends around you! Crafting is a favorite pastime in my house and today I’m going to show you how to make an oh-so-cute Handprint Snowman Ornament! This would but a great ornament to break out every year to put on the tree, or a great gift for a family member! 

Here is how to make a Handprint Snowman Ornament:

Step 1: First, you will need a clear ornament, some paint, and a little hand! I did not have white paint so I opted to fill my ornament with fake snow we made, and then make our snowman blue! Take your blue (or white!) paint and paint your childs palm and fingers, make sure to coat them well.

Step 2: While the paint is still wet, have your child grab and hole the bottom of your ornament. For smaller hands they made need some help. Make sure to push each finger down so the paint will transfer

Step 3: Lift your childs hand straight up, making sure not to smudge the paint. Fill in any holes with a paint brush, and let the handprint dry completely!  (it took ours about 15 minuets)

Step 4: Get creative! Make your snowman however you want!! Ours had fun top hats and orange noses! Let them dry before hanging them on your tree!
