DIY Christmas Ornaments!


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 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 DIY Christmas photo 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 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 DIY hot cocoa ornaments from ‘Bubbly Nature’.



From Heidi at ‘Happiness is Homemade’, these DIY personalized glitter 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 DIY felt Christmas tree ornaments. I love these because they have a really organic texture and shape. Pretty!



LOVE these decoupaged glass 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!



Last one! These DIY snow globe ornaments by ‘DIY Inspired’ are, well… inspiring! Easy!
