Aloha and Happy Wednesday! This week I’m posting from Hawaii! We’re here for a friend’s wedding this week, but before we left we put up our tree! I love digging through our boxes of ornaments and finding all our old treasures. My mom and I have a tradition where we pick out our ornament at the Hallmark store the day after Christmas every year. I love this tradition because I get to add to my collection every year, but this year I want to add some homemade ornaments to my tree. I have a couple ideas involving pictures and some other ideas for gifts for friends that I’ll hopefully be sharing in a few weeks. Until then, I’ve rounded up several DIY ornament ideas for your perusal. Enjoy and have a Happy Thanksgiving!!
Great idea to put your family photo in an ornament. I like the shape of the frame!
Glammed up pine cones – I love these colors.
These are different photo ornaments. You could use photo booth pics too.
DIY no-mess glitter ornaments. This is a great idea because you can make your own color combinations and you could still decorate the outside of the glass as well.
Another photo ornament – lots of fun papers.
A wood block ornament is a cute idea for baby’s first Christmas. You could do a picture on a couple sides, birth information on another and maybe a handprint on the last. Or you could use it to put pictures of each family member on the side.
Marbelized ornaments -these are so pretty and look easy to make.
Another picture idea using inexpensive wood plaques and modge podge.
Book page ornaments with a little sparkle.
Remember the family pet with his/her paw print – cute!
A picture ball ornament. I like the ‘snow’ in this one.
Chalkboard ornaments – what a cute gift tag idea.
Pretty, stamped salt dough ornaments.
DIY Mercury glass ornament. I love mercury glass and it’s ‘in’ right now. Click the link to get the tutorial.
Cinnamon ornaments. These would make your tree smell nice!
