Making this baby hospital bracelet ornament was pretty easy. I only purchased the ornament and I got it at the dollar store for, you guessed it, a dollar!

Step 2: Poke the baby’s hospital hat into the ornament. To get it to lay the way you want it, use a pencil or a pen (just make sure it doesn’t leave any marks) to move the hat around.

Step 3: Add the baby’s hospital bracelet to the ornament. If you need to move it around, use a pen or pencil like before to get it the way you want it.

Now every year you get your ornaments out, you can remember back to the days when your child was so little. You can remember all the snuggles, giggles, and smiles from when your child was just learning about their new world. To me, this is better than storing the items where you never get them out to look at.
