DIY Ornaments

[Originally posted on 12/6/11]

Sometimes home-made gifts are just the best, they are always thoughtful because you know that the giver spent time thinking about you while they were making your gift. Today, I thought it would be fun to give you some DIY ornament ideas. These are great for decorating not only your tree, but also a mantle, shelves or used as a table centerpiece. Or this would be a great idea to do with your kids!

Mod Podge Tree Ornament, by Loving City Living

Snowy Crystal ornaments. Cover a glass ornament in glue and roll it in epsom salt. So easy!

Marble and painted ornaments by Bower Power. (actually this blog has several great ideas for DIY ornaments)

Button Ornament. Use a styrofoam ball and straight pins to fasten the buttons onto the ornament.

Painted letters. This is a great idea for a mantle banner.

Linen and burlap ornaments. I made a tutorial on some just like these a few days ago during my Christmas wreath tutorial.

I hope these ideas have inspired you. Happy Crafting!
