diy of the week: "hand" painted ornaments

so i'm taking a little break from the eucharisteo.  why you ask?  well have you tried to write 1,000 things that make you feel joyful?  easier said than done!  seriously try it... especially after a long frustrating day.  it'll definitely make you realize you don't need to sweat the small stuff (and yes, just like the book says its all small stuff).  I'm postponing the rest until next month.  I'm still writing them down but as the list gets longer I am finding its a bigger challenge!

i wanted to FINALLY blog about Anna's first craft project.  ok yes, she is only a few months old and i doubt she'll have any fond memories of doing it but it sure was fun for me! this would be great to do every year and see how much she grows.



"hand" painted ornaments
{the goods}
a child's hand
clear plastic ornaments (plastic is perfect so you never have to worry about it breaking)
embossing clear stamp pad
glitter or embossing powder
embossing gun
ribbon
hot glue gun
plastic or paper towel (just to lay out so you don't get glitter everywhere)

{get to crafting}
take the child's hand and stamp it on the stamp pad.  place child's hand on ornament.  sprinkle a fine amount of glitter over the stamped hand print.  shake off excess glitter.  heat print with embossing gun (but don't overheat and melt the ornament!).  let cool.  take ribbon and make bow.  hot glue bow to top of ornament.  hang and enjoy!
