If you’re lookin’ for a way to make your pet’s mark on the tree for Christmas, this Paw Print Christmas Ornament is frugal, fun, and fabulous! This is also a great gift for like minded canine or feline lovin’ friends and family to honor their loyal pet with the rest of the family during the holidays. You can just personalize it with a paw and your pets name or fill it with small dry food for another fun element. My Lady says the kiddos will love doin’ this part!
Here’s my Lady to tell ya how to make a Paw Print Christmas Ornament!
glass/plastic ball ornament
optional:small dog/cat food pieces
Wipe down ornament well with alcohol and allow to dry thoroughly, this removes oil, fingerprints and dirt which might otherwise interfere with your print adhering well.
If your pet will allow it (don’t stress them out for the sake of an actual paw print) – Paint the pads of one foot with an even layer of paint and press firmly into one side of ball ornament. If not simply draw one on using a paint pen.
Allow to dry for several hours.
Use a paint pen to add your pups name and date if desired.
Remove the top of the ornament and fill with small pieces of dog/cat food to really make it a canine or feline-themed decoration!
The food makes it heavier, so be sure to hot glue the top to the neck of the ball ornament. Keep in mind that the filler will make it heavier, so take care when hanging on the tree
Add a ribbon to the top loop of your ornament for hanging.
