Is your tree looking a little bare? Instead of rushing out to buy more ornaments, why not make your own this year? DIY Christmas ornaments are a fun way to get into the holiday spirit. Plus, they make great personal gifts for friends and family members. The only thing that limits you is your own imagination. Here are a few ideas to get you started!
This rustic ornament looks charming and smells good too. Using cinnamon sticks, twigs, twine and buttons from the local craft store, glue together your own snowflake-shaped ornament. Decorate with the buttons, twine, ribbon, and anything else that strikes your fancy.
Scrabble Tile Ornaments
Create your own Christmas message with scrabble tiles and glue them together. Add ribbon or sparkles and hang at the front of your tree.
Bottle Cap Snowmen
Paint old bottle caps white and glue three of them to a single strand of ribbon, stacked vertically. Draw on buttons, a smile, and a carrot nose. Don’t forget to add extra ribbon for the scarf! This is the perfect holiday craft for kids.
Sparkling Light Bulbs
Take old bulbs (the smaller the better), paint them with glue, and then cover them in sprinkles. Glue a string on the end for hanging. These sparkly bulbs will look dazzling next to the tree’s Christmas lights.
