Christmas is right around the corner and this Christmas I have two little ones to celebrate with. Last year I made a Baby's First Keepsake Ornament for my daughter. My due date was Christmas eve but she decided to make an early entrance so I was busy trying to get the whole new mommy thing down so she didn't get her Baby's First Keepsake Ornament until the following year. I just made my son's ornament a few days ago. They are super easy to make, super cute, and super cheap.
Stuff everything into your ornament. I used a pen to help push the hospital hat down into the ornament. If you have a bigger hospital arm band it will look better if you put that in first then put the hat in the center of the arm band. After everything is in the ornament put the top back on and personalize it with the Puff paint or Paint Pens. I personalized them with their names and date of birth. Like I said before they are super easy to make and only cost a few cents; Plus, what else where you going to do with the newborn hospital hat and arm bands? They are now on display for everyone to see and when my children are grown they will be able to take their keepsake ornaments for their own Christmas tree, that is if they choose to, as a reminder of how little they use to be!
UPDATE: So I recently had my third baby and made him a keepsake ornament out of his hospital items. We didn't get the pink and blue hat the other two got when they were born but we did get a hospital hat so I squeezed the hospital hat and his ID bands into a plastic ornament and personalized the ornament with my son's name and birth date. I used a green Sharpie paint pen to personalize his ornament.
