Homemade Christmas: A Massive Collection of Ornaments

Do your kids love decorating the tree?  I know mine do – and I love seeing their little creations each year.  This is a sampling of my collection of homemade ornament ideas.  I had a blast linking to ornaments all week on the QuirkyMomma facebook page.  Thanks for linking up posts and ideas both in It’s Playtime from last week, and on our wall.

These handprint ornaments from Little Bit Funky were the most repinned/shared ornament mentioned this week. They would make terrific gifts!

We made both cinnamon ornaments and pipecleaner twists this week.

Love how these icicles turned out! Home Adventures made them with clear packaging destined for the recycle bin and some silver glitter.

Craft Snob, a teacher in training, made these fun I Spy ornaments – great tutorial.

The DIY Dish suggested making a flower ornament by using a whiffle ball. Brilliant idea!

The momma over at Toddler Approved is daring! Her kiddo practiced sewing with these Easy Quilted Tree Ornaments.

Wreaths make me smile.  This cute wreath ornament is made out of buttons and pipecleaners.

Make little pine cone people to “guard” your tree – via Home Adventures with Mom.

Who said all the ornaments need to be inside? Here are some decorations for the birds from Salt Water Kids.

Paint Cut Paste – used memento shells from their summer vacation to decorate their tree, and as gifts for family.

These paper canes were such a hit (made by The Chocolate Muffin Tree) that there are several other versions out there, including one from Happy Hooligans (who also linked up that Popsicle Stick tree).  Thanks both of you for linking up!

Here is a fun game you can play with your kids and the ornaments – I Spy!  Thanks Imagination Soup for this game idea.

Creativity My Passion added a twist to the traditional salt-dough decorations with glitter.


Want more kid-made ornament ideas?  Stop by facebook the rest of the week, I’ll continue to add ornaments I discover.  Also, check out our collections on Pinterest – there are literally dozens of ornaments on there.  Too many to make!  If only I had more time!!

Happy linking for another week of It’s Playtime.
