DIY handprint and thumbprint ornaments

I’m all about the last-minute holiday preparations, so this week I’ll be posting DIY ideas that you can pull together at the last second! If you’re a last-minute person like me, these will be right up your alley. And if you’re a super-planner who’s been ready for Christmas since Halloween, well – don’t gloat too much. ; )

Today’s round-up of ideas are all ornaments you can make with your kids’ handprints or thumbprints. Any of these would be so much fun to make and would also be such meaningful gifts!
