Nathan and Autumn's 2011 Ornaments
It has been a tradition in our household, that every year the kids make an ornament. I have so much fun figuring out an ornament idea every year, and then working with them to create it. Usually I have a little trouble digging up ideas, but thanks to Pinterest, I had no trouble figuring out an idea for this years ornament. I decided to do snowmen ornaments, with the kids fingerprints being the snowman's rosey cheeks.
Luckily, I did Autumn's when she had fallen asleep on the couch one afternoon. She rarely naps, so this was a perfect opportunity to paint her little finger red and to get fingerprints on six ornaments. She had her little hand just posed for me-- ha, ha! And, she did not even wake up!
Here the ornaments are drying after I got both kids fingerprints on them in red
Then I painted the faces on for them. Nathan's ornaments are the matte white ones, Autumn's are a pearly white
And, here are the ornaments on the tree. I have a whole section on our tree for the ornaments the kids have made... it is my favorite part of the tree.
