Christmas Ornaments to Make

Okay, I can’t stand it! If I can’t make Christmas gifts and goodies, I can at least look and dream! I will be attempting to make some simple things, but I thought that while I was dreaming over swell new ideas, I would share them with you, too.

So, without further adieu, here are some really cool ornaments that I have found online to craft. If you make any of them, please share a photo with me. I’d love to see what everyone is up to!

This nifty ornament could almost double as a simple science experiment for a youngster:  http://www.marthastewart.com/269342/crystal-snowflake

This one is a cutie, but I found it on Pinterest with no website information, but it looks pretty simple.

Here is a super sweet set of little snowmen ornaments that I found on Pinterest, but again, no website information, so I can’t give any credit.

They look simple enough, maybe paint pens on ivory ball ornaments with a bit of twine?

And a Santa ornament that is cute with the same problem.  I would love to give credit to the original idea, but I don’t know where it came from!  I bet this one could also be done with some black electrical tape and a silver glitter pen on a red ornament.   Personally, I am a sucker for ol’ Saint Nick at Christmastime, so this one really made me smile.

I also have noticed that with the advent of some of the paint pens, that more and more ornaments say things like, “believe,”  “faith,” and “Christ” on them.  If you have nice handwriting, those could be lovely with a bow of pretty ribbon or twine attached to the top.  You could also (with a steady hand) paint a large Star of Bethlehem on a blue ball with striking results.  And don’t forget the old rustic stand by of twine, burlap, or muslin covered styrofoam balls.  Unbreakable and easy is a pretty cool combination in my house!  I also am liking some of the simple decoupage ornaments with old  book pages and aged sheet music.

The possibilities really are endless.  So, as I recuperate,

What ornaments are your family making this year?

Till next time,
