Make your own

The women in my family have the tradition of exchanging homemade Christmas ornaments each year.

I have had a lot of fun creating my own ornaments in the past and handing them out at our Christmas party. I love that I come home with around 10 new ornaments each year to add to my collection.

I was searching online for some ideas for this years ornament and came across some great ones.

These beauties are made from beads and corsage pins!

I am a big fan of the real ribbon candy and I love how easy this ornament is to make!

Although this pocket watch ornament would be a little expensive,
I had to feature it because I love it so much

I'm having a hard time choosing which ornament to make this year!

Here are a few that my family has made in the past:

Scrapbook paper Modge Podged onto a wooden heart with buttons hot glued on the front.

Wooden snowflakes found at a local craft store, painted and glittered.

This cute little tree was made with a Scotch Brite pad and a stick of cinnamon for the trunk.

More scrapbook paper Modge Podged onto a wooden block with a ribbon tied around it to make it look like a miniature present.

So what do you think. Which one would you like hanging on your tree?



I love the first one, but I'm biased. My mom made ornaments like that before I was born and they were on our tree every year.

You Are My Fave

That Scrabble one is so clever. I love that game.
