Like many mama's I'm on a total budget when it comes to christmas gifts and it's my daughter's first christmas. I really want to make plaster handprint ornaments for my 6-month-olds 3 living grandparents but needed advice.
A few weeks ago I did a plaster cast of her hand print from a kit. It was just powder that I mixed with water. I added a few drops of food coloring (my own idea) and made a lilac plaster heart with her handprint in the middle.
I would like to do the same thing, maybe make circles the size of a wine glass or martini glass opening, put her hand print in them, put a ribbon through the top and make Christmas Ornaments. But I don't know how to make plaster on my own. Or how to find a circle cast that size (cookie cutters?) Or where to find any of the materials/ingredients. Any ideas or suggestions of easier alternatives!?
