Since this is Skylar’s very first Christmas, she made a special ornament to commemorate her first year.  I took a clear glass ornament and stamped her little handprint on it with acrylic paint.  After the paint dried, I took off the top and stuffed in the hospital ankle bands that she wore at hospital when she was born:

This is a really simple and quick ornament that I think we will enjoy hanging up on our Christmas tree every year:

Her hand is so little!

This idea is really similar to the wedding capsule ornament that I blogged about 4 years ago. I smile every year when I hang up our ornament filled with flower petals that were thrown at us on our wedding day:

We are all about handmade ornaments at our home.  I’ve written up tutorials on a bunch of them that I’ve made over the years. Here is a round up of a few other fun homemade ornament ideas:
