DIY Ornaments

Do you make your own ornaments?  I haven't made an ornament since probably elementary school!  But there are so many DIY ornaments that are really pretty!  How easy is it to grab a glass ball ornament and fill it with something?! Here are some fun DIY ornaments I've rounded up:

Origami box ornament from Creature Comforts


Sequin-filled ornament from You Are My Fave


German star ornament from Martha Stewart


Clay bird ornament from Jessica Jane Handmade


Confetti-filled ornament from West Elm that would be an easy DIY


Glitter leaf ornament from A Field Journal


Tissue paper glass ball ornament from Fresh Home Ideas

  1. Those origami boxes out of newspaper are so cute and I love how they are hanging in a window.

    I saw your comment on the Nutcracker. Yes I'm blessed to have Phil take me twice, but he isn't a fan either. He says that he is just waiting for someone to start talking. He says he would like it better if there were dialogue lol

  12. oh my gosh the ornaments i made when i was little are the most horrendous things. yet also awesome. i like the idea of making a grown up one that's perhaps a little more artsy and crafty.
