Hello there! My name is Jill from Meet the Dubiens. I was thrilled when Amanda asked me to do a guest post on her blog. Thanks so much Amanda! I am a lover of all things handprint/footprint/thumbprint so, of course, I just love Amanda's blog.
I have 2 kids - Kirsten is 4 and Camden is about to turn 3! I'm married to a wonderful man, James, and we're enjoying every minute of raising our 2 wonderful kiddos together. My blog is full of craft ideas, fun foods to make for kids, and lots of pictures. Come visit us to check out our handprint/footprint/thumbprint crafts or my Fun Food Friday for kids where I share a new lunch idea for kiddos every Friday.
Today I'm going to share a craft that my daughter and I made last Christmas - Thumbprint Christmas Lights. It's a great Christmas craft to keep for yourself, or would make a great keepsake Christmas card to send to friends and family.
This craft was really fun. Kirsten and I made these one day while Cam was having his afternoon nap. She had a lot of fun picking out the colours and stamping her little thumb on the string of lights. This was super easy and it's really cute, bright and colourful. Here's how we made this:
What you'll need:
paint - lots of colours
1. using your sharpie, draw a string for your lights on your paper
2. stamp your child's thumb in different colours all along the light string and allow to dry
3. using your sharpie again, draw a squiggly for the light bulb base
Thanks again Amanda for having me!
