Handprint Ornaments

These sweet keepsakes will be treasured for years to come! Make one each December!

  • Buy clay from your local craft department.
  • Roll it out to about ½ inch thick.
  • Press your baby’s hand into the clay to make a good print, and then cut a circle around the handprint.
  • Poke a hole in the top with a straw for hanging with a ribbon, and bake to harden.
  • Alternatively, you can use salt dough instead of clay.
