Homemade Christmas Ornaments
There is something special about homemade Christmas ornaments. They are made with love and attention, and are unique to just you and your Christmas tree, as no two will be exactly the same! I remember making decorations at school for my parents to hang on the tree, and similarly, my son doing the same for me, when he was a little boy. Homemade decorations can evoke memories of days gone by, and some are so special, that they appear on the tree year after year.
There is also the financial side of things – Christmas is often an expensive time of year, and decorations can be very pricey. Making your own means that you not only get to save a bit of cash, but also get to be creative, crafty, and have a bit of fun! Most of the homemade Christmas ornaments that I’ve included in this roundup can be made inexpensively, and some with items you may already have at home. From the ideas that I’ve shared here, it might spark some inspiration to make your own variations. I know I have some ideas already!
The first four ornaments linked below are ones I’ve made and shared on my blog, while the others are from blogs I’ve discovered recently. If you a go at any of these ideas, as always, I would love to be able to see them! Share a picture with me on Twitter, Facebook, or Snapchat!
