How To Make A Baby’s First Christmas Ornament!
Hi, I’m Donni Webber and I’m delighted to be back with another DIY craft for ChristmasOrnaments.com. Making a baby’s first Christmas ornament has been a family tradition in our home. We use our baby’s memory book, paging through the precious memories together and reminiscing about all the firsts. It makes us smile and cry and remember how lucky we are to have this bundle of joy in our lives.
For the baby’s first Christmas ornament, we choose about 10 of the most memorable memories and write them down in pretty colored ink.
Other materials needed for baby’s first Christmas ornament:
- shaped scissors
- a glass globe
- alphabet stickers
- pretty Christmas ribbon
We cut out the written memories with shaped scissors, making sure that the width of the paper strip is small enough to fit through the opening in the glass globe. Carefully, with the writing against the glass, we feed the paper strip into the globe. The globe gets quite full when all 10 memories are inside. If we need to, we use a stick skewer to help feed the paper memories into the globe.
We use the alphabet stickers to write baby’s name on the outside of the glass globe, along with the date.
To finish the ornament, we tie on a pretty Christmas bow and hang Baby’s First Christmas Ornament on the tree.
In years to come, Gemma can carefully take the little memories out of the globe and see how much we love her… my older kids do every Christmas when they trim the new tree.
I hope you have enjoyed this DIY Baby’s First Christmas Ornament craft. I’ll be back soon with another fun and easy Christmas project… be sure to check back regularly.
