This Fingerprint Christmas Light Ornament is one of my all time favorite DIY ornaments for kids to make around the holidays. It’s an easy keepsake that you’ll cherish year after year!
I recently wanted to create a sentimental diy ornament so I made this cute kid’s fingerprint ornament and made the fingerprints look like Christmas lights! It’s very easy to make and would be such a cute keepsake or grandparent gift!
Why I Love this DIY Ornament for Kids
- First, kids love fingerprint crafts so you’re sure to get 100% participation when making this ornament.
- This is such an easy craft, its the perfect Christmas ornament for preschoolers to make, but older kids will love it too.
- It’s a great ornament to look back on year after year as the kids get bigger and grow.
How to Make a Christmas Light DIY Ornament for Kids
To get started just gather a paper plate, plain ceramic ornament. I used three colors of acrylic craft paint-one for each of my three boys. I helped each of them add their fingerprints to the ornament (so I could position them how I wanted-it would have been polka-dotted all over if I had let them have free reign!)
I hung my ornament on my tree to dry for about two hours…just be sure the paint is totally dry before continuing!
Then simply use a Sharpie to add caps to the fingerpirnt lights…
…and string them together! That’s it!
