Little Hands

I love my babies' hands. They are so adorable and I love their little fingers.  For every one of my baby's first Christmases, I make a handprint ornament for them.  I also make one for my parents so they can have one as a lovely keepsake.

I have made these with salt dough, but they crack really easily the older they get. I bought some foam clay a few years ago, but due to some really dumb decisions, I accidentally made super sticky ornaments that never dried.  This year I re-did the ornaments I made a few years ago, and made some new ones for my little baby.  I bought some air-drying porcelain-like clay and it worked like a charm!
