Snow Family Ornament Part two and a late Merry Christmas!!

So Merry Christmas!! I know it is a little late but I had last minute family in from out of town.  I have been playing hostess and not much of anything else. I really wanted to get these last few thing posted before Christmas but I am only one person. :( I should have asked Santa for an extra pair of hands.
I finally finished our 2011 Family Ornament!!! I did put our names on our hats and our dogs names on the small snowballs. What do you think? I love them and can't wait to make more. I used E6000 glue to attach all my snow people together. Now the clay doesn't bake up white so I did have to do a good coat of white paint over the bodies before I painted everything else. For great tips on making clay ornaments check out this crafty mama's blog



The funny snowball on the top of our heads has our last name and the year written on them. Can you believe Mr.Wonderful and I have been collecting them since our first christmas together 10 years ago. :)
We also let the  boys make hand print ornaments. I love them!!! I will cherish these forever. I painted them white and painted the hand prints with glitter paint. On the back I wrote their names, the date, and what they asked for from Santa.


Now this ornament is near and dear to my heart. It is still unfinished because I still unsure of the wording. This is my thumb print and Mr. Wonderful's thumbprint. I painted it white and then painted my little birds with the thumb print as the body. Isn't it so cute?!



I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and a blessed New Year!!!!

  1. Ok ...I don't know where the rest of my comment to hayley went but ...The birdies were completely unplanned. I had a little clay left over and I wanted one just for us. I got our thumb prints and just figured I would figure it out. As soon as they came out of the oven I looked down and could see love birds and thought how perfect....Don't you love when things fall into place like that.
