MTLGTM: Snow Family

Another entry in the MY TRUE LOVE GAVE TO ME Holiday Craft Extravaganza! Today, I share one of my favorite projects. It’s not original, but it is special.

HOW TO MAKE A SNOWMAN FAMILY ORNAMENT!

1. Acquire volunteers. Listen to volunteers complain about how many pictures you’re taking.

2. Paint volunteer’s fingers with acrylic paint. If your ornament has a large circumference, you might want to paint the whole finger. Also, may I suggest you do this project close to a sink?

3. Have volunteers hold ornament so that their fingers imprint close to the center. (Note: The thing on the floor is a dog toy, not a wayward piece of lettuce.)

4. Allow fingerprints to dry. Threaten freedom of volunteers if THEY SO MUCH AS LOOK at those ornaments before they dry.

5. Embellish! I used paint pens and permanent markers.

I plan to put a coat of white glitter on the bottom, but for now, I like the way they look resting on the mercury glass candle holders. Again, I’d love to see your pictures if you make any of these!

  1. In preschool, kindergarten, and 1st grade, my kiddo’s teachers made these with her so the kids could take home Christmas presents they made at school for mom and dad. So sweet!
