Homemade Ornaments

We’re onto some fun ornaments to make with the kids.
Now I saw these Candy Cane Reindeer a few years back.  An engineer at my old company made them for his friends at work.  No sadly I wasn’t one of the lucky ones.  Yup not bitter about that or the baby blanket his wife made for the engineers that had new babies but not this assistant .. lol.  These are super fun and easy to make with the kids.  REALLY you can pick everything up at the dollar store.

I made these Snowmen Handprint Ornament last year and I loved how they turned out that I want to do them every year. This year the kids moved there fingers so my snowmen were a little on the thin and then fluffy side … lol.

And for the last ornament I found this Cinnamon Applesauce Holiday Ornament that were a not as fun as I thought to make … hehe.  I’m honest they were kind of a pain.  They smelled good and are cute but my applesauce sucked up cinnamon like a sponge.  Now the gal I got the recipe from had the whole ornament with glitter.  I emailed asking how she got it on, I should have frazed it did you bake it with glitter or after. hehe she sent me and email back with just the word Glue. HEHE she so thought I was dumb.  So for you who want to know after they are baked you can glue.  I found glitter glue at the dollar store and we bedazzled from there.

  5. They're all so cute! Especially the snowmen!! I can definitely see why you'd want to do them each year :-) The reindeer look familiar too...almost like I might have done something like them when I was little.
