An Ornament to Commemorate Your New Home

New House Ornament

Yes, another DIY ornament for your tree this year. I think there’s something special about having ornaments to commemorate the major events in your life—new babies, new homes, first Christmases of all kinds. And I love this simple key print idea for making a first-Christmas-in-a-new-house ornament from In the Little Yellow House.

It’s as easy as getting a clay you bake in the oven, like Sculpey, making the shape you want, pressing in your house key. Then you can paint or write on the date once the clay has been baked according to the package directions. Just don’t forget the hole for the ribbon or ornament hanger!

    I love this idea for a client gift…being a Realtor I love new original ideas! Thanks….I’m making one tonight with a house shape cookie cutter and luminence clay, so hopefully it will slightly glow on their tree.
