3 Christmas Ornaments That You Can Make At Home


I have been crafting away lately. I've slightly been obsessed with making my own things lately and some of those things have been Christmas Ornaments. I have made 3 Ornaments that I thought I would share with you. They are so easy and fun to make and they hold such a special meaning to my heart.

The 1st Ornament on the left is a Salt Dough Hand Print Ornament.


What you will need is:

  • 1/2 Cup Salt
  • 1/2 Cup Plain Flour
  • 1/4 Cup Water (give or take) Knead until dough forms.

Make Impression and cut out hand shape with a knife leaving a border.
Poke a hole in top for hanging. Bake at 200 degrees for 3 hours. Paint to look like Santa, Seal and it's ready to hang.


The Middle Ornament is so easy to make...
All you need is a clear plastic ornament which is 96 cents at Walmart and your baby's newborn hat from the hospital. Just insert the hat into the ornament.

It's so simple to make and it's a great way to preserve your baby's hat.


The 3rd ornament on the right is a memorial ornament that I made of my mom. 
What you will need:
  • Clear 96 cent plastic ornament from Walmart
  • Sugar 
  • Photo of loved one
  • Christmas ribbon
All I did was pour sugar about midway into the ornament to make it look like snow. Then I inserted a wallet sized photo into the ornament and made sure it stuck in the sugar. To do this, I rolled up my photo to were it would fit into the ornament vertically. I then took a pair of tweezers to unroll the ornament once it was inside. Once I got the photo situated to my liking, I then put the top of the ornament back on and tied a Christmas ribbon around it.


I'm so pleased with how these turned out. It's a cheap way to decorate your tree or you can make these as gifts. I like the fact that they are homemade and have such a wonderful meaning to them.


Have you made any ornaments for Christmas as decorations or gifts?
