Mess-Free Christmas Handprint Ornament

posted in: Family | 0

The project was SO EASY to do! So easy that my mom did all the work while I held a slightly squirming 6-month old AND took the pictures!! I LOVE the fact that this project does NOT require getting an infant’s hand dirty with paint!

Mess-Free Christmas Handprint Ornament

Supplies needed:

a glass {or plastic} ornament ball
clear embossing ink {such as Versa Mark}
embossing powder {color of your choice}
q-tip or pencil eraser {to clean it up a bit}
embossing heat gun or hair dryer {just test the hair dryer on the embossing powder first}


Once you have all the supplies at the ready, then;

Step 1: Get the baby’s hand sticky


Step 2: Press baby’s hand onto ornament

I was not able to get a clear shot of this step {took a bit of work to unclench baby’s hand}

Step 3: Sprinkle embossing powder onto ornament


Step 4: Clean up the extra powder using an eraser


Step 5: Heat up the embossing powder to melt it


Once you are done, then add a name and date with a sharpie!
