Since I brought my first destroyer of decorations and home decor home from the hospital I haven’t done a lot of decorating at the holidays. But now that everyone has a tiny bit more impulse control we’ve been taking out more and more things. I do, however, stick to things that are relatively unbreakable.
We made these quick little hand ornaments to decorate a garland swag over a doorway. If you have a little bit bigger kids they can help with a bunch of these steps!
You will need:
Freezer Paper (I get mine from the grocery store)
Misc. decoration you may want to add (I reused some pieces of an old wreath)
Trace your little hands onto your freezer paper. Use a smooth hard surface, like a book. Thanks for the help Martha!
Iron your freezer paper hands shiny side down to your fabric. You don’t have to go crazy with the iron- that would be a bad idea on fleece or felt. Keep a lowish heat, press gently and not for real long, you just want the hands to stick down. If you’re nervous about melting your fabric or making a mess you can always pin down your pattern.
I did the above and didn’t have an issue, but ironer beware fleece and felt WILL melt if you aren’t careful.
