I saw this idea over at "Full of Great Ideas" blog. I thought it was just darling. Check it out here.
I usually try and give the grandparents something homemade from the boys every year. When I saw this, I said to myself, this was my idea for this year.
This was WAY EASIER than I anticipated. I actually put off making these thinking they were going to be a real pain & MESSY. But I was happily surprised when the kid's portion of the project literally took 5 minutes each. We made 16 total ornaments (8 for each kid). It was super easy & cleanup was really a snap.
This is what I started with: A Dollar Tree find $1 for each package.
Here is the end result:
I also added this little poem to each ornament.
*I got this from her blog as well.
"These aren't just five snowmen
As anyone can see.
I made them with my hand
Which is a part of me.
Now each year when you trim the tree
You'll look back and recall
Christmas of 2010
When my hand was just this small!"
Feel free to use the tag I created in Picnik, just please give credit back to my blog.
