This is great idea of DIY gift. I love my family and I am really thanks God that I was born in my parents family. We do have lots of family photo but this fingerprint ornament we haven’t done it before until today. I am going to show you how to do it. As a picture it is simple and lovely. source
Two. Wax paper
Three. Clay roller
Five. A plastic straw which we normally use for the juices and cold drinks.
Six. Silver crayon OR spray paints
How to make:-
Take a small amount of oven baked clay. Paste or knead it until it becomes soft enough to work with. Place wax paper. Take the clay and roll it with clay roller. Roll it until it becomes thick. Make a shape as shown in the picture. Cut the marked clay with cutter. You may use a cookie cutter to cut out different shapes. Take a straw to make a hole in each of the ornament for hanging. Bring it to any family gathering and get the finger prints. Place the clay coins on a sheet. You can add letter to ornament by stamping letters. You could also stamp the years, date or birthdays or memorable occasions as well. Once you have done all, place the sheet in the oven and bake. Mostly clay only takes 15 to 20 minutes to harden. Then cool it. Once the ornaments have cooled, take a crayon and lighter color in the family finger print. You can also use spray paint. Tie with ribbon and they are ready to present.
