Fingerprint Wreath Keepsake Ornament

Here is a brand new keepsake idea for you: fingerprint wreath photo ornament. Is it not too pretty?

Fingerprint wreath

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. Letbit cool down completely. Add a few touches of red paint for the berries and also the ribbon and bell.
