We made it to the final day of the 12 Days of Christmas Ornaments!! I don’t know about you but I am exhausted! I hope you all have enjoyed the inspiration we’ve been sharing-now you have a grand total of 144 DIY Ornament ideas-can you believe it? There has to be something for everyone in that mix! For my last ornament I wanted to create something sentimental so I made this cute kid’s fingerprint ornament and made the fingerprints look like Christmas lights! It’s very easy to make and would be such a cute keepsake or grandparent gift!
To get started just gather a paper plate, plain ornament (I bought this plain white one but you could also pour paint into a clear ornament to create your backdrop. I used three colors of acrylic craft paint-one for each of my three boys. I helped each of them add their finger prints to the ornament (so I could position them how I wanted-it would have been polka dotted all over if I had let them have free reign!)
I hung my ornament on my tree to dry for about two hours…just be sure the paint is totally dry before continuing!
Then simply use a Sharpie to add caps to the fingerpirnt lights…
…and string them together! That’s it! Now for the last of our 144 ornament ideas, thanks so much for joining us on this (very busy) 12 day adventure-if you have DIY ornaments you’d like to share we’d love for you to scroll down and link up your own!!
