Wyatt made his first Christmas presents this year! I knew that I wanted to do something to incorporate his hand or foot print. Pinterest was full of ideas, as usual.
Attempt #1 – Salt Dough Ornaments. This was a fail. We forgot to put holes in them for hanging, the hand and foot impressions were barely visible, and they crumbled as they dried up.
Attempt #2 – Washable paint. We took a rag and applied some paint to the bottom of the Wingman’s foot. This was a fail. His foot just slid all around, rendering the painted imprint only remotely resembling the general shape of a foot.
Attempt #3 – Paint pen. Success! I traced the Wingman’s hand on a piece of paper and used that as a stencil for the ornaments. The first one, I taped the paper on for easier tracing….but when I removed the tape, it removed the color on the ornament. Oops! On the rest of them, I was able to carefully hold the paper in place and trace the hand print. Then I filled it in with the paint pen.
I love how they turned out!! His little baby hands are so precious. 🙂
