I love handmade goods at Christmastime, especially on my tree.  Some people adore a gorgeous perfectly decorated themed tree but I enjoy handmade all the way.  Blick Art Materials  challenged us to make our own mini canvas ornaments and we knew thumbprints were the way to go!  I adore any type of hand print art, kids grow SO fast and I love to look back at their little messy art and they love to measure how much they’ve grown.  I hope you love these mini canvas thumbprint ornaments as much as we do, I’ll cherish them forever.

Supplies to make adorable mini canvas thumbprint ornaments!

Directions:

  • Carefully dip child’s thumb into the paint, press down on the canvas.
  • When dry, accessorize print into reindeer, Santa, elf, grinch, etc by using additional paints OR markers.
  • (My 5 year old used the marker for ease while my 7-11 year olds had fun with the paints + brushes)
  • When dry, have child write name on back + year.
  • Loop 8″ ribbon and hot glue to backside of the canvas.
  • Hang and remember those little thumbs for years to come.
