These are so beautiful, practical and fun looking to make! Every year I try to pick one crafty thing to make and give... and you have certainly inspired me with this. I will attempt to make some of these and have the baby put her tiny hands and feet prints on them. I know a few grandparents would like these.

It's wonderful to know that they last a long time... maybe the baby will have them on her own tree one day.

From the thumbnail, I thought they were wood carved, these have got to be the best dough ornaments I've ever seen! Thanks for all the tips, I never would have thought to use jewelry for stamping.

I think the idea of putting baby handprints and footprints in for grandparents is a pretty good one!

The ones I made years ago have a shellac on them--I think it came in a spray can...like I said earlier, they yellowed a bit and some are cracked a little, but it makes them look really vintage!

Once again, beautiful work!

Cool. I made some of those with my little cousins once at the cottage on a rainy day. Yours are super awesome looking. Like taking a simple craft to a new level. 

I had this wicked book that I've since lost that had instructions on how to microwave them. It took ages though, way longer than the book said, and we just found the oven way more convenient. It was a good recipe too. I've used others that got all weird and puffy. (Guess poking holes in the back would of helped.)

I cant wait to try these I love how you stamped them very neat gift idea!

Thank you.  I thought to myself, how can I get more detail and that is what I came up with and it worked well.

Thank you very much, a nice way to spend a rainy day for sure  I tried microwaving and didn't like how it turned out....wasn't pretty for me anyways.  I actually poked some holes in the front of mine, I guess if you use a small enough needle it won't show very much and the paint should fill the holes in.

Thanks.  I hope you enjoy making them.

Thank you.  I wish you good luck.  I know if not all of them turn out you can always toss them.  They are fairly cheap.  I am still new at this so I do encounter problems at times.  I find the detail from the stamped ones shows much better on the unbaked air dried ones usually.

I think the idea of putting baby handprints and footprints in for grandparents is a pretty good one!

Thank you.  Vintage look is wonderful.  My brother inlaws wife actually made the foot print ones and maybe handprint ones too, she let them air dry as far as I know, and they were quite thick. They turned out not too bad.

I love these.  I have a cousin who loves this kind of thing as a christmas present.

Thank you for loving my ornaments.

No problem. They sure are addicting for me anyway.  They are fairly cheap to make.

Thank you very much, what a nice comment.  At first I didn't think of using the jewlery.  It took me a bit of experimenting.

Thank you so much, I am glad I inspired you I hope you enjoy making them.  They certainly are a lot of fun for me to make and relaxing too, as mentioned above my brother inlaws wife made some thick ones with foot and handprints and they turned out, as far as I know she just air dried them I think it took quite a while on a cooling rack.

I cant wait to try these I love how you stamped them very neat gift idea!


I hope you have lots of fun making them, thanks for your comment.
