Christmas Ornaments

This weekend we had to get our minds off the bug, so we decided to make these ornaments.  I remember growing up with similar ornaments that my dad made when he was little, so we thought we would give it a try!

They just have three ingredients, so they were pretty simple...

^^^Carter cutting out shapes.  Think he might need to eat a bit more?

^^^We also wrote our Santa letters.  Carter is hoping for a Lightning McQueen bike!

^^^Peter just really wanted to eat the dough.

^^^Carter getting them ready to go in the oven.

 ^^^They cooked for two hours, so I painted them when they were finished to get them ready for the boys after naps.

 ^^^Then it was time to decorate with glitter glue!

 And, a sampling of the finished product (minus the string to hang them with)...

We had a blast doing it and can't wait to give them to others for Christmas!


  1. They are so cute!! The picture of your husband and two boys all smiling is adorable :)

  2. What a fun little family project! I love it! They look so cute!

  3. What a GREAT idea!!! :) How fun!
