Baby’s First Ornament

baby's first ornament Christmas gift idea

To remember your baby’s first Christmas how about a unique baby’s first ornament? This handmade baby’s first ornament is simple to make and here’s a tutorial.

How to Make a Baby’s First Christmas Ornament

  1. Simply grab a clear ornament from a craft store and some letters. I found the clear ball at a craft store for less than $1.  But right now as it’s not the season they’re gone but they are on Amazon here very cheaply!
  2. You can paint or stick them on. Get ready to personalize for a personalized baby’s first Christmas ornament.
  3. Fill with items like hospital bracelets, hat, locks of hair etc.
  4. Decorate the outside and voila!
  5. How cute will this be to give to a Grandparent or the child when they’re older?

This would also work great as a wedding memory or even vacation memory, get creative!

  1. How do you get a hat in it with the hole being so small? :/ I love the idea

    • Yes it’s a case of wrapping it really thin! If you can’t have a think on other fun hospital ideas or things like locks of hair. Super cute right?
