1. Gum Drop
Ornaments: Cut a papier–mâché egg ornament in half or—better yet—use half
of an old plastic Easter egg. Paint it and then glue chunky glitter to it and
you get yourself a sweet, wish-it-was-real-so-I-can-eat-it-gumdrop. Get the
how-to at Dream a Little Bigger.
2. Dollar Store
Diorama: Create a mid-century modern ornament using items from the
dollar store. Turn a plastic wine glass upside down, drill a hole in the top to
put a wire hanger, then glue little animals, trees and glitter on a cardboard
circle. Next glue your cardboard circle to your plastic cup and decorate with
tinselly trim. Get the how-to at Pitter and Glink.
3. DIY Crystal
Snowflakes: This Christmas ornament is part decoration, part snowflake. And
that ROCKS! All you need is to make a solution of 1/3 cup borax and 2 cups of
boiling water. Then add your pipe cleaner shapes and let the science happen
overnight. When you wake up, enjoy the Christmas magic. Get the how-to at Work
4. Christmas Tree
Ornaments: Wrap a Styrofoam cone with yarn, then decorate it with sequins
and a pom-pom. Add a jingle bell for extra fun. Get the how at Craft Passion.
5. Photo Ornament: Preserve your memories by adding photos to your DIY ornaments. Using a square
plastic bulb, you can add four family photos (one for each side) to your
ornament. Then glue glitter on the top for a snow-like effect. Get the how-to
at Rust and Sunshine.
6. Snowball Pom-Pom
Faces: Simply make some yarn pom-poms (tutorials are all over the Web).
Then glue on yarn facial features and add pink cheeks. Get the how-to at Molly Moo.
7. 10-Minute Mason
Jar Lid Ornaments: Cut silhouette animals out of felt and glue them to a
felt circle. Then neatly tuck the felt into a Mason jar lid. The best part: It
takes minutes to make. Get the how-to at Handmade By Kelly.
8. Paper Straw Tree
Ornaments: Cut your straws into various lengths and then glue them to your
"trunk." Add ribbon and a paper star to complete your project. Get the how-to at Simple As That Blog.
9: Here Comes
Rudolph: Use birch rounds (found at craft stores) as the base. Then drill
holes to thread your ribbon through. Here's comes the fun part: Glue branches
as antlers, googly eyes and pom-pom for the nose. Get the how-to at Artzy
10. Oh Starry Night: Make ornaments with embroidery string wrapped around pipe cleaners and a mini pom-pom. Get the how-to Art Bar
