Help your child to make a fingerprint wreath keepsake ornament from salt dough to add to your Christmas tree decorations or give as gifts.
Here is a lovely keepsake idea for you: fingerprint wreath photo ornament. Is it not too pretty! Have you seen all these Keepsake Ornaments?
You will need:
- green salt dough(see this post for the ingredients)
- two circular items, one slightly bigger than the other
- Cookie Letter Stamps
- ribbon and bell
- red paint
What to do:
Roll out the dough to 1cm thick. Add the smaller circular object(we used a lid) and let your child press fingerprints all around.
Use the larger circular object(we used a small bowl) to cut the wreath by placing the object over the prints and cutting around it.
Add the date to the wreath if you wish. It does make a great keepsake if you do.
Bake the wreath for 3 hours at 70’C or 160’F. Let it cool down completely. Add a few touches of red paint for the berries. Add also the ribbon and bell.
Attach the photo to the back and the wreath ornament is ready to hang on the tree!
Such a pretty and special fingerprint wreath photo ornament!
