The Grinch Hand Print DIY Clay Ornament
Easy Christmas Ornaments to Make
For the last three year I have gotten together with my girlfriends and their babies to make ornaments. The ornaments are always something to do with either foot prints or their hand prints.
Now that our kids have reached their terrible twos I thought it would only be fitting to do a Grinch theme this year. They came out so adorable that I had to share it with you guys!
Use Air dry Clay for best DIY Christmas Ornaments
I am going to say this because I do not want anyone else to have heart break that we did. I do not recommend using the floor dough recipe that is floating around Pinterest. We made our ornaments out of that dough three years ago and sadly we don’t have them anymore because they turned to mold when they were in storage this year. So that memory is forever gone.
Use my air dry clay recipe, it is the best recipe to use for making your ornaments. Air Dry Clay will not mold, the clay is safe for kids and you will be able to keep the memories forever!
