Isn’t it the cutest thing ever? I am so happy with how it turned out and I love that it is such a special keepsake! They weren’t that hard to make at all. We used the clay that you bake in the oven, red paint for the hat, nose, and rosy cheeks, tan paint for the face, and a black sharpie for the lines.
And I think I now have a new tradition each Thanksgiving Eve: An ornament craft night. My friend Cindy came over Wednesday night with her two boys and we had so much fun making ornaments together. I do have to say that we did most of the work since our boys are only three and two but it was definitely worth the time it took to hand paint each ornament.
These ornaments truly mark a moment in time and to me that is the best thing a personalized ornament can do.
