We love making homemade ornaments to adorn our tree. This year my husband has been busy in his shop cutting these little circles out of wood, and I was dying to find a way we could turn these into an ornament.
Thumbprint Snowman Ornaments
Here's what you'll need:
- A wooden disk - for real branch slices, you can find them on Etsy.
- White acrylic paint
- Multi-colored sharpies
- Red ribbon
These ornaments are super easy. Just dip your thumb and pinkie fingers in the white paint to build your snowman. There is really no wrong way to make your snowman. To prove me right, my daughter added a third dot to her snowman...super cute!
I love making things together with my family. Not only do you end up with some really cute ornaments, but you also build memories for years to come. Once you've placed your white snowman as you like it on your wooden disk, then wait for the paint to dry. We left it overnight because some of our snowmen had thicker paint.
Next we got out our colored markers and decorated our snowmen! Easy peasy!
Add a ribbon to the finished product and you've got an adorable ornament to adorn your tree. Make sure to have your little artist sign their name on the back with the year!
Merry Christmas and happy ornament hanging!
