Every family member gets to decorate the tree with ornaments that symbolize personal interests and life moments. But what about the new baby? He or she should be able to claim part of the tree, too. Therefore, we love the idea of paying tribute to the newest, best friend in their life, the WubbaNub.

Recreate the animal they love most with an easy felt ornament and cherish it for years to come, remembering what the days of cooing, cuddling and gummy smiles were like. We’ve got a quick and easy DIY for you to follow to make something just like the classic Red Dog creation pictured below, which was created and sent to us by a proud WubbaNub mom.
