Footprint “Mistle Toes” Ornaments

Mistle Toes Ornaments

For the daycare parents this year I knew I wanted to do a handprint or footprint craft.  This was especially true since the two full-time families I have right now have babies.  Handprint and footprint crafts are cute for bigger kids but there is just something about the little baby hands and feet.

I’d seen this amazing canvas project from Pinkie for Pink

…BUT knew that both Lil’ Lady (8 months) and Cowboy (2 months) are too squirmy to guarantee good footprints.  So I opted to make ornaments instead.  Pretty straightforward really.  I made them almost exactly like the Handprint Bookmarks that were our Grandparents Day gifts this year.

I’m hoping the parents loved them – even though I had to send them home with the ribbon just taped together.  Lost all of my glue somehow:)

I think they are really cute – how about you?

The girls (5 & 3) and I are off to ring the Salvation Army bell for TWO hours.  There weren’t any shorter shifts so we’ll see how they do.  I’m hoping they can “cute it up” with Santa hats and party dresses and stir up some extra generosity.

Only 3 sleeps until Christmas!! 

Blue Skies and Blessings,
