Easy Santa Handprint Ornament

I love this Santa Handprint Ornament because it is so EASY to make and it does not make a big mess. (If you are not in a big hurry, be sure to try this DIY Salt Dough Handprint) HANDPRINT and FOOTPRINT crafts make the best keepsakes!


For this Easy Santa Handprint Ornament craft you will need:

  • 1 piece of white foam board
  • 1 piece of red foam board
  • 2 googley eyes
  • 1 red pompom
  • 1 white pompom
  • 1 piece of ribbon
  • glue
  • black marker
  • (Cotton balls, optional)



Trace the child’s hand onto the white foam board and cut it out.

Use the first cut out as a guide to cut out another one on the red foam board, Cut out the thumb, but do not cut out fingers on the red one, just cut curves where the fingers would be.

Cut out the santa hat trim from the leftover white foam board.

Place glue on the top of the white hand cut out except for the fingers. Place the ribbon at the top to make a loop and glue the red piece on top.

Glue on the white foam board santa hat trim (or glue on cotton balls if you prefer)

Glue the red pom pom on as Santa’s nose and the white pom pom on the end of the thumb as the white tip at the end of the hat. Glue on the googley eyes and draw on the mouth.

Let dry, then hang up your adorable Santa Handprint ornament on the Christmas tree and enjoy!


We hope you enjoy this easy craft for Christmas, handprint crafts are a favorite and this one will be a wonderful keepsake for years to come.
