20 Homemade Ornaments for Baby’s First Christmas

One of my favorite Christmas traditions is to make homemade ornaments with the kids every year — and I like to start when they’re babies! Having a precious handprint or footprint painted on an otherwise plain ornament helps to make baby’s first Christmas that much more special. Going the DIY route is also a fantastic way to make memories while capturing those early moments in a keepsake that will last for years to come.

The best part about all this? Making Christmas ornaments becomes a family tradition that you can start no matter how little your child is.

Below you will find 20 of our favorite Holiday keepsakes that you can create with your baby from day 1!
