Christmas: 40+ Handmade Ornaments

Christmas Tree Ornaments

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! In the past, I created meticulously color coordinated Christmas trees with delicate ornaments. I’d spend the majority of the holidays trying to keep the kids away from said tree because of all those breakable ornaments. This year, I’m embracing the stage of life we’re in with a preschooler who loves to craft and a toddler who loves to destroy. We’ll be making all of our ornaments this year, with a mishmash of colors and creativity. It may not be worthy of a Pottery Barn magazine, but I couldn’t be more excited to put up a tree full of memories this year. I’ve rounded up over 40 handmade ornament ideas, so you can get crafty this holiday season too! Join the Kid Friendly Crafts, Recipes and Activities group on Facebook, where I’ll be posting more information about an upcoming handmade ornament swap for kids.

I'm Vanessa and it's my mission in life to spread my love of hot glue guns and glitter to others. I suffer from craft ADHD, regularly working on at least 10 projects at the same time and my craft room looks like a tornado hit it. My first craft book, Party in a Jar, was published in 2014. I look forward to crafting with you!
