Handmade holidays part 3

As part of my effort to make rather than buy this Christmas I started on some new ornaments. I previously had a tradition of buying Hallmark ornaments for the kids each year, but as the selection gets smaller in Australia every year I decided to change that for Eve.
Each year we are going to make a handprint ornament, I see this working until about five at which time we’ll switch to making an ornament together each year.

Because I has plenty of materials left over I made a few others. We probably won’t have a tree this year but I’m sure I can put them around the place.

I’ve left them white for now but I’d love to make them in candy / rainbow colours.
