Bet you thought this post had something to do with etiquette? Nope. Just hand prints! It may seem strange, but I am already envisioning my life as a grandmother. Our Christmas tree will be HUGE and real. My grandkids will all come over and help me decorate with the years of hand (and some foot) prints of their parents. I’m only 29, but don’t judge my dreams. Regardless… we came up with some masterpieces this year, made with the same recipe of LAST YEAR’S craft post. Check it out! First gather your ingredients:
Mix your ingredients together in a bowl until well blended- I prefer to use my hands. Then gather your dough in a ball and prepare to roll out on your counter:
Roll dough to 1/4-1/2 inch thick. Using a bowl, press a circle into your dough for your hand/foot prints, or use your cookie cutters for fun shapes. Using a chopstick (or similar), put a hole in the top of each ornament for hanging:
When you’re ready, put your ornaments on an ungreased baking tray and put in the oven at 225° for 2 hours. Then flip and bake for another 2 hours, until hardened. When they cool, use all of your artistic talents and decorate using paint, sparkles, or whatever your heart desires:
When the décor is dry, seal your ornament! This is incredibly important to make sure they stay mold-free for years of Christmas enjoyment!
Hang those beauties on the tree, gift wrap the others! We love using the trees and stars we make as hangtags on gifts! Put the year and To:/From: info as a unique touch and another small gift.
