If you are looking for a fun and easy way to decorate a play area or other area in your home, try these easy Any Warhol style hand prints. I had originally planned to use canvas, but canvases cost more than I wanted to spend. Instead, I used approximately one foot square pieces of leftover quarter inch plywood. A thin layer of acrylic paint allowed the wood grain to show through. Painting hands is always a giggly affair at my house, and this project was no exception.
Each year our family buys a special ornament for our Solstice Tree. My husband and I pick out one each year, along with each child picking one out. Right now our tree is gaining these ornaments at a rather fast rate, but the day will come when our children are grown and take their ornaments with them. When that happens, our tree is going to be looking rather bare. So each year, we also make ornaments.
My absolute favorite ornaments this year are the handprint snowmen ornaments we made. We made two for each child: one for us to keep and one that will go with our children. They grow up so fast, and I am so happy that I will have these to look back on. I even got a little crazy, and we made a set for my husband’s parents.
These are exceptionally easy to make. If you aren’t a crafty sort, you can find a a step by step tutorial at Little Bit Funky.
