DIY Christmas Ornaments

There’s something about the holiday season that just makes me feel extra crafty. From decorating a gingerbread house to picking out the best bow for my wrapped present, I love it all! But above all my favorite part of Christmas has got to be putting up the Christmas tree. When family comes together, united in the purpose of decorating a gorgeous tree, magic is created.

This magic is partly due to the reliving of memories when holding a priceless homemade ornament. DIY Christmas tree ornaments each carry a story. Whether you made it with your children, with close friends, or just by yourself, these ornaments carry a special significance of hard work and creativity. While there are many beautiful manufactured ornaments, the homemade ones sure are remarkable! Below I have compiled 20 homemade ornaments that are easy to make and look amazing. Have fun crafting!
