My Pottery Barn Handprint Ornament {and why you need one, too}

One of the realities of parenthood is that the days may seem long, but the years are short. I love creating and gifting keepsakes around the holidays that are meaningful, beautiful, and that we’ll cherish for years to come. I recently purchased the Baby Handprint Ornament (currently on sale!) from Pottery Barn Kids, and it’ll definitely be one of those keepsakes that we’ll love for a lifetime.

After purchasing the ornament kit, my 3 year old couldn’t wait to open it up and get to work. Everything you need is in the kit, and it probably took all of 5 minutes to put it together (not counting drying time, of course).

See how much fun we’re having? It really is easy, quick and foolproof! The safe and non-toxic air dry clay requires no mixing or baking.

We used it as part of our holiday decor, but this product would also make a great baby gift and keepsake-what a perfect, thoughtful present for baby showers, baptisms, birthdays, or any occasion for that matter!

See how nicely it fits in with my aqua and red holiday decor? I also tried it out on our Christmas tree…

My 3 year old loves pointing it out to visitors, letting them know exactly whose hand it is. If I didn’t love it so much myself, I think it would make a fabulous gift topper for grandparent gifts! They’re currently on sale, with free shipping, so I may need to pick up a couple extra!

So tell me, what’s your most treasured holiday keepsake?

Such a wonderful keepsake. Love how you displayed it on the mason jar with the berry branches!
