Kids Handprint Santa Ornament made with Air Dry Clay
Kids Hand Print Santa Ornament
HoHoHo Its time to get Crafty. I always grew up just having glass ball ornaments on my tree, while my husband had all different kinds of ornaments on the tree.
When we first got married I wanted to keep the tree like the one I had growing up. Then I had kids and it slowly changed because I loved having unique ornaments and ornaments that were kids keepsake ornaments on our tree.
I also got hooked on making DIY Ornaments with air dry clay and their handprints to make keepsakes that I will be able to keep forever!
I have made a lot of different air dry handprint ornaments, but these Santa handprint ornaments are my absolute favorite!

Handprint Santa Ornament Ingredients
How to Make Handprint Santa Ornament
Roll out your clay to 1/4 inch. Press your child’s hand into the clay.
With a pairing knife carefully cut around the hand print leaving a 1/4 boarder.
Make a small hole on the bottom of the hand print which will be your top, to be able to hang it from the tree.
Let it dry for 3 days. Paint the ornament white.
Paint the Santa hat leaving a small part of the thumb whit for the ball of the hat and a small part of the brim of his hat white.
Under the brim of the hat paint it tan for his face, leaving the rest white for his beard.
With the paint pen draw his face and highlight around the hand print.
Dot a small red dot for his nose.
Let the paint dry and then hang the ornaments on your tree.
