Handprint Snowman Ornaments

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.

Dobby’s Sock Harry Potter Ornament

This month we are reading and watching Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets for the Harry potter book and movie challenges. I decided to make Dobby’s sock as this month’s Harry Potter ornament.

It’s often been said that you can tell a lot about a person, not by how they treat those society deems as his/her equals, but by the person’s treatment of those society views as inferior.

Even small acts can make a very large difference in another person’s life.
