Looking for unique Christmas tree decorations for your tree or to give as a gift? I've rounded up 15 fun Christmas ornaments for you to make!
I tend to say that I'm not crafty but I don't think that's exactly it. I do think that I have to be in the right headspace to want to make, say, a Christmas ornament or something similar. But, get me in the right headspace or with some friends and making holiday DIY crafts can be fun.
A few years back, I went to a Thursday morning crafting get together at my neighbor's house. The intention for the get together was making Christmas tree decorations. I thought it was so fun but wished I would have gone to the get together with DIY ornament ideas because I was staring at all the crafting supplies and felt a bit overwhelmed at first.
With that in mind, I'm sharing some fun ornaments that you might want to make this year.

You're inspired to make some fun ornaments for your Christmas tree now, right? This year, my mom and I have plans to use some of my late Grandmother's old jewelry to make a Christmas art piece. I think it would be fun and a nod to my grandma who loved costume jewelry.
Other than that holiday project, I can't decide if I'm going to make my book tree again or not. I really loved how it looked and, although it did take a few hours... it really wasn't bad. I'd probably make a tabletop version this year if I do a book tree again and go with a live tree like we typically do in the living room. TBD on that one!
Anyways, happy holiday crafting to you no matter what project you have planned!
p.s. Pin for later so you don't forget!
