a blog about my busy little life as a mom

better late than never

I didn’t get Avery a “Baby’s First Christmas” ornament this year and I was pretty disappointed in myself when I was putting all the Christmas ornaments away.  So, I decided to make one instead.  I bought some clear plastic ornaments, red acrylic paint, and Sharpie paint markers, then got to work.  I already had some red polka dot ribbon that I used to hang the ornament from.  I secured it in a loop with my handy dandy hot glue gun.

The hardest part was definitely getting her handprint onto the ornament without any smears.  After a few attempts, I got it right.

Now we have a personalized keepsake ornament to hang on the tree every year 🙂
