Fingerprint Wreath Ornaments


DIY Fingerprint Ornament

I absolutely love using things my kids have made as decor of the holidays. All the little handprints, foot prints, and crazy painted items have a very special place in our home. If you ask my family though, I tend to have a slight obsession with ornaments. I love putting up the tree and breaking out all the fun ornaments from places we’ve been and the family ones showing how much we’ve grown. This year I decided to make something special for both my boys to make for this year’s tree.

What You’ll Need: Round Ceramic Ornament, Round Sticker, Green Paint, Modge Podge (or other sealant), Red Jewels, E6000 (or other strong adhesive), Paint Pen

DIY Fingerprint Ornament

DIY Fingerprint OrnamentPlace a round sticker (I just created one with some wash tape and parchment paper) on the center of the ornament. Now your kids can go to town putting little green finger prints all over the empty space. Make sure that they stick with just small finger prints rather than spreading it all together.

Let the paint dry then seal it with Modge Podge. Once the sealant is dry you can place your gems around the wreath like holly berries. Using a tooth pick helps keep your fingers from getting too sticky and makes placement easier.

Write a favorite seasonal word (and of course, name and year on the back) in the center and you’re ready to decorate your tree!

Looking forward to finding a special place on the tree for these two!

Last weekend we broke out the Christmas decorations and got down to business decorating the house.  I love decorating for this time of year and it was so cute to see Mr. G really get into it as well.  Anything I wasn’t going to use anymore, he decided needed to go in his room for decoration.  His room is now a complete hodge podge of christmas decor from years past and I love it!

While going through the box of decorations, I found some of my favorite ones that I made myself that I had forgotten about.  So today I thought I would share some with you for a Christmas decor DIY round up!
