We have made thumbprint cups before and they have always gone down a storm, so when I sore this fantastic Reindeer Thumbprint Ornament Tutorial, I knew that we had to do cups fort the boys teachers and teaching assistants.
We use this porcelain paint (£11.99) that I have had since Maxi was a baby from Baker Ross and also a black porcelain paint pen for the fine work. As the boys are getting older they are able to add the detail themselves and yes they do not look perfect, but that is half of the charm of them.
We also decided to do some tiny ornaments too, next time I would do this with acrylic paint as it would stand out more and also with bigger ornaments, but I will be looking for more baubles in the sale. The matte ones are the most effective. I am also going to pop the year and initial on the underside and keep a couple of our tree, this would be a great thing to do each year.
