This special homemade photo gift is sure to warm hearts this winter! Create one for a special someone or make many to give as gifts to family and friends to share the joy of warm winter wishes!
What you need:
Sheets of colored paper or craft foam
Ribbon or small adhesive magnets
Small photo(s) of your family or child
Single hole punch
Decorative “winter” craft accessories of your choice
What to do:
- Use a pencil to trace your child’s hand on a sheet of paper or craft foam. Trace each finger individually or around their four fingers together and thumb separately to make a mitten shape.
- Carefully cut out the hand or mitten shape, and then trim your photo to fit in the “palm” of the cutout. Glue the photo in place.
- Here’s the fun part! Encourage your little one to get creative with washable markers and “winter” craft accessories to add their own decorative touch!
- When your child is happy with their masterpiece, either punch a hole in the top and tie a ribbon through it for hanging or attach small adhesive magnets to the back for hanging on the refrigerator.
