Loving on these elegant DIY Christmas ornaments from ‘Designing Vibes‘. This marbled look can be made to look more sophisticated, like these, or more fun by using more than one color. You won’t believe the secret “ingredient” here! Easy homemade ornament project.

 

Our next project are these amazing DIY bell jar ornaments by ‘My SO Called Crafty Life‘… make sure you read the comments, lots of tips and ideas there, too.

DIY Christmas Ornaments!

 

From ‘Easy, Peasy and Fun‘, make some of these homemade Christmas ornaments in a sand! These are great DIY projects for kids and parents to make together. You could let them choose their fav colors, or have the yarn all precut and have them make new creations. These make you feel like you are in a snow cabin for the holidays!

 

We ALWAYS love Kim at ‘Sand and Sisal‘! Her coastal style is charming and comforting, without being too “cute”… So when I saw these sea glass handmade ornaments and her tutorial for them, I couldn’t believe how easy they were! Be sure to check out her Christmas whole home tour while you’re there… such great inspiration!

These photo DIY Christmas ornaments by ‘Dear Chrissy‘ makes a really special element in your tree… You could do them all  in B&W for a vintage look, or include all summer vaca photos… choose a theme, even if it’s as simple as all the kid’s when they were preschoolers, or wedding photos… choose what speaks to you. Or forget everything I just said, and make them with whatever photos you want… it is your tree, after all. Make it yours!

Ok, does this get any easier? Glass ball, metallic paint pen. From ‘Ben Franklin Crafts‘.

The kids will love this, and they make great gifts… but I love these too! Seeing these on the tree would just make me smile and think about comfort and family and home… Make these hot cocoa DIY ornaments from ‘Bubbly Nature‘.

From Heidi at ‘Happiness is Homemade‘, these personalized glitter DIY ornaments look like they are store bought! Now she used a vinyl cutting machine to make the names, but check out the scrapbooking aisle at a craft store… you could do the same with vinyl letters.

Amy at ‘This Heart is Mine‘ teaches us how to make these felt tree DIY Christmas ornaments. I love these because they have a really organic texture and shape. Pretty!

LOVE these decoupaged glass DIY ornaments by Ki Naussauer Style. They used vintage German papers from one of their fav shops… Easy, pretty, vintage ornaments!

Have a nature theme this year? ‘By Stephanie Lynn‘ has you covered… I love birds, and nature, so these clay egg bird nest ornaments really appeal to me… Plus, I just saw some like this in the Macy’s Christmas store!
