Holiday DIY Project — Amanda’s Footprint Ornament

Hey everyone! As Meghan said in her post yesterday, I am in the middle of a move to a new apartment. Trust me, it is about as easy as herding cats when you’re trying to keep a recently walking toddler out of things while you’re packing. Mommy. Is. Tired.

However, today I found the box of Christmas ornaments, and I wanted to share a few pictures with you of the footprint ornament we made last year with the Tiny Ideas Babyprints Ornament:

Amanda’s Footprint Ornament

As you can see, it turned out really well. We actually tried to do her hand last year, but we did not wait until Amanda was asleep, and she was a bit upset about having her extremities dipped in paint. After a few dozen tries, we finally got the foot. So, please, follow Meghan’s advice on that one.

The ornament is big enough and it comes with enough paint that you can totally do two prints. I put her name and the date on the footprint side (the gold sharpie is included in the kit), but I left the other side completely blank. Once we are finally settled into our new apartment, I want to see if Amanda will be a little more cooperative this year and put her hand print on the other side. I will let you know how that goes!
