I love, love, love the way this handmade glitter handprint ornament turned out! The best part?! It only took a total of maybe 15 minutes to make it!
My friend had given me these frog ornaments awhile back as a Christmas gift, and for whatever reason, the frogs were sitting on a clear ball ornament. I finally upcycled it into this glitter-y keepsake ornament that will treasure my 2 year olds handprint for years to come!
Glitter Handprint Ornament Instructions
I used Martha Stewart’s glitter to make this ornament. I love the sophisticated look of her glitter and the quality of it. I also used her glitter glue- I am not as impressed with her glitter glue. Anyway, back to the How-to! I used a washable marker to trace my son’s handprint (just wipe it off and start over if you mess up). Then, I used a paintbrush to fill in the handprint with glitter glue. I took the green glitter and shook it on the ornament over a paper plate (this makes it easy to place back into the jar because you can fold it in half to form a funnel).
All you have to do next is fill in the remaining areas with glue and shake on a different color glitter- PRICELESS!
I am going to save the other one for when we eventually have another child.
