Candace’s Crafty Corner: Fingerprint Ornament

Can you believe it, another post? Better hold on tight, things are about to get Christmas crazy around here.

Remember from yesterday’s post, Amelie’s little fingerprint reindeer ornament?

We made a handful for family and friends. Here’s how. First, I needed some reindeer inspiration:

Second, supplies. You will need clear plastic ornaments, red and brown craft paint (I used Martha Stewart Tartan Red and Vanilla Bean), a Sharpie, and tiny fingers to do the finger printing!

ADORABLE! Am I right or am I right?

Ok, time to be candid. I stole this idea straight from a friend on Facebook. I attempted to have Cade make his own fingerprints, but he acted as if I was trying to rip his finger off so Amelie did both prints (one with her thumb, one with her pointer finger). She thought it was awesome and I thought it was too until she wiped brown paint on her pants…

Anyway, I wanted to share a seriously quick and easy craft if you were looking for something homemade. My hope is one day I’ll add sparkly red paint to the noses but I know the probability of me getting around to that is solidly in the Unlikely Category.

More Christmas posts coming. Brace yo’self.

  1. So Fabulous!! They are adorable. I can see see Cade wondering what you were doing to his finger. ::)) LOL. Amelie looks so sweet that I bet Santa brings her tons of stuff for Christmas. And maybe after Christmas. ::)) Absolutely love your blogs. lv mamap

    • Amelie is a spoiled but sweet little reindeer. <3 She wore her antlers to preschool today for the cookie exchange. I don’t think there could be anything cuter! More blogs coming! Hopefully.
