8 DIY Holiday Gifts for Grandma

1. Reindeer Prints: This simple print has a sophisticated touch. Made with just a hand print on paper, a mini pom-pom and a gold marker, this beauty is sure to be a family treasure. Get the how-to at Buggy and Buddy.

2. Fingerprint Hearts: Whip yourself up a batch of baking soda clay and then press your thumbs together to make a heart shape. Once dry, paint each heart a solid color. Get the how-to at Mama Papa Bubba.

3. Baby's First Christmas: Smear embossing ink on baby's hand, then carefully press against a glass ornament. Then sprinkle with embossing powder to achieve the shine. Get the how-to at A Sort of Fairy Tale.

4. String Art: We are absolutely in love with this handy art piece. Simply trace your baby's hand onto a wooden craft plaque, nail around the edges and then start stringing. We love the modern gray and white. Get the how-to at South Broad and Crew.

5. Thumbs Up: This project is great for a personalized Christmas card for grandma or a framed art piece. All you have to do is press baby's thumb on an ink pad and then once it dries draw the light string with a Sharpie. Get the how-to at Beneath the Rowan Tree.

6. Mistletoes: The most challenging part of this project is for baby not to run away from you while paint is on her foot. Simply press a painted foot on a plate as the "V" and write "L-O" and "E" on the plate. Get the how-to at Polka Dot Pots.

7. Kid Hands Keychain: Immortalize your kid's handprint by rubbing ink all over your child's hand. Then press down on a Shrinky Dink sheet. Follow the Shrinky Dink instructions. Once small, decorate and attach a keychain. Get the how-to at Little Wave Designs.

8. Glitter Prints: Using an easy baking soda clay recipe, press baby's hand in and let dry. Then add glitter. This one is so cute, you'll want to keep it for yourself. Get the how-to at Mama Papa Bubba.

9. High-Five for Santa: Transform your handprint into Santa Clause with a little bit of paint. We love that these are on Mason jars instead of just paper. Use these festive jars to place a special something inside. Get the how-to at All Free Kid Crafts.
