Baby’s First Christmas Ornament

We have all seen Christmas ornaments for Baby’s First Christmas. They all look non-personal. You can make one that is personal and special to your child. You can use a glass bulb or you can use plastic in any color. You could also use the ones from a craft store that is clear and can be opened. If you use one that can be opened you could put a little keepsake inside as well. To make the glitter footprints use white school glue. Spread white school glue across a sheet of wax paper. Take the wax paper and place on the bottom of your child’s foot. If your child’s foot is not being cooperative tickle the top of the foot near the toes. They will extend their toes allowing you to do this part much easier. Now place the foot against the bulb. Having someone help you is very helpful. Roll the foot a little to make sure the glue print is a good impression. Wipe your child’s foot with a wet wipe. Over a bowl pour the glitter onto the bulb. If need be press lightly to make sure it adheres well. Allow to dry overnight. Use a spray polyurethane to spray two to three light coats over the entire bulb to make sure the glitter does not come off. Let dry until no longer tacky. Its now ready to hang on a tree. You could also do this with a hand print.
