Homemade Christmas Crafts: Easy Ornaments with Craft Supplies on Hand


I used to love making ornaments
like these when I was a little girl.

My own little girls like making them too!



Just fold some lace "accordian style"
string it on pipe cleaners with some beads
and you've got festive little
wreaths and candy canes to hang on the tree or in a sunny window!


When the weather outside is frightful...
we craft.


We've been making
pushpin and bead ornaments

and


Pom-pom and
rainbow yarn
garland for the trees.

Some
simple crafts
for these quiet days
before Christmas.

I will be taking a blogging break
for a few days to enjoy
the holidays with my little family.

Wishing you all a very safe
and Merry Christmas!

My mother made wreath ornaments much like your first photo. I've been making Christmas ornaments since I was a kid (many years ago). It is great you are passing on the tradition to your girls!

love them. my oldest daughter decided to make an ornament this year - on her own.

it's a piece of construction paper. that has the word "christmas" written on it (by her teacher).

it's up on our tree. and she's quite proud of it.
