I am now hooked on Pinterest. If you haven't checked it out, it's so cool. It's a great way to put all of the stuff you love, that you find on the internet, in a folder and be able to go back and check it out. I have found so many cool Christmas crafts that I'm in craft heaven!
Anyway, I found an adorable reindeer thumbprint ornament that I just had to try. I love preserving my boys in some way throughout their lives.
All you need is an ornament (I recommend a shatterproof one)
brown acrylic paint
black sharpie marker
red sharpie or puff paint
1. Paint your child's thumb brown
2. Place it on the ornament
3. Let dry
4. draw 2 lines for antlers and make little V's
5. draw the eyes with black sharpies
6. I used puff paint for the little red nose
7. Let dry and hang.
I just think they are soooo cute! The best part is you can add several kids to one ornament and there's room to add more.
Happy Crafting all! BJ
