Ornaments to Enjoy
Let’s take a look at some of the creative DIY ornaments you and your family can make:
- Clothespin Snowmen – For this project, simply purchase some regular clothespins. You’ll want to paint them white. Afterward, use a permanent marker to make eyes, a mouth, and buttons (always using dots). Then, use pieces of yarn and tiny pom-poms. Wrap the yarn around the neck of the snowmen for a scarf and the orange pom-poms will represent the carrot nose! Now, clip the snowmen on the tree!
- Ball Ornaments – We’re all familiar with the signature ball ornaments that hang on a tree. At a craft store, you can purchase plastic ones as well as clear ones. You and your kids can paint each ornament, draw on them, and even use glitter if you wish!
- Popsicle Snowflake – For this ornament, you’ll need popsicle sticks, buttons, and glue. Simply glue the three sticks together in the form of a star or snowflake. Then, you’ll want to choose various colors of blue buttons. Glue the buttons onto the popsicle sticks. On the back of the stick, you can glue a piece of yarn that will be used for the hanger so you can display the ornament on the tree.
- Clay Art – For those of you who want to spend a bit more time on the ornaments and get more creative, purchase some clay that you can mold and cut into various holiday-themed pieces. You can cut out a tree, a Santa hat, and more. Bake the clay until it’s hard. Be sure to poke a hole near the top of the ornament where you can run some ribbon through it to hang on the tree. You can paint the ornament however you wish! Hot tip – write the initials and the date on the back of the ornament.
Spend a weekend creating various ornaments that you can hang on the tree for years to come. Your children can pass down these precious, sentimental ornaments throughout the rest of their lives. Head to the craft store right away and get started!
