Handprint Ornaments

So, I know everyone is making these ornaments this year, but I saw these hand-print snowman ornaments about two years ago and have always wanted to make them. This was the year! I had put it off because I couldn't figure out how to do it exactly. I was totally over-thinking it. All you have to do is paint the entire hand white. Then as you hold on to the top (where you put the hook) you have your child grasp the ornament below. Imagine the ornament is going to be thrown underhanded. That is it-too simple! Then later on add details (like the eyes, nose, scarf, hat, mouth, and buttons). I haven't quite mastered this part, but I hope family appreciates them anyway!
