DIY Christmas Ornament Crafts

Every family that celebrates Christmas has a different style when it comes to decorating their tree. Some favor chic color-coordinated pines with elegant and matching ornaments and tinsel. Others throw up a hodge-podge of random trinkets, some stemming from elementary school art classes, and others dating back generations in the family. 

But the best part of decorating a family Christmas tree is getting out the ornaments year after year and reminiscing about where each one came from, how it was made and the history behind it. Although the painted red and green bowtie pasta wreaths are somewhat of an eyesore (sorry mom), it's the homemade thought that counts.

Make some new memories with your family this year by creating your own version of DIY Christmas ornaments. As much-needed decor on a Christmas tree, they also make handy homemade gifts for friends and family, or as little trinkets to leave for your guests who are staying at your house for the holidays.

The best part is most of these crafts can be made with the help of your family. While creating gorgeous displays for the holidays, you're also creating memories that will last a lifetime. Year after year when you go to place the handmade ornaments back on the tree, you'll remember how much fun you had creating them together. That's truly the gift that keeps on giving.
