Have you ever made your own ornaments before? It’s super easy, and has become our newest idea for a Christmas-themed Gender Reveal.
We found clear Christmas ball ornaments at our nearest craft store. We also picked up a bag of green jingle bells and a bag of red ones, plus some fake snow. We decided to use the colors of the season to aid in this reveal. Green is for boy and red is for girl. To add more of a holiday twist, we decided to use the stocking to hide the ornament — it’s a boy!
What we love about this idea, although simplistic, is that it becomes the catalyst for so many ways to share the good news. You can take pictures, like ones we snapped, and put them on your Christmas card. (Check out how we did this with our last reveal). Or, you can make entire day out of it with family and friends. Have them over for making ornaments and memories, then do the reveal live with your own stocking! This is a great way for you, yourself, to also be surprised.
How are you revealing the gender? Are you keeping it holiday themed? We want to see! Use #thisisgoingtobefun @motherhoodmaternity or learn more about our #MerryMoms Campaign for personalizing all those picture-worthy moments.
