Handmade Christmas ornaments make the perfect decoration for wrapping relatives’ gifts. We made these adorable snowmen handprint ornaments for members of our family last year. It’s as easy as 1-2-3! Here’s how we did it.


  • Blue bulbs
  • White paint as well as other colors such as green, red, and black
  • Paintbrush
  • Optional: egg carton (for a drying rack)

Step 1:

Paint your child’s hand white. Place the bulb in their hand, creating a handprint around the bulb.

Step 2:

Let your child’s handprint dry. I set the bulbs in an egg carton to keep them from rolling around.

Step 3:

Use other colors to decorate the snowmen (the fingers that naturally have three parts like a snowman). We had fun adding buttons, hats and faces on our snowmen.
