Before we know it, Christmas will be here. But if you’re a DIY-er, we know you are already hard at work, just like one of Santa’s workshop elves! Because now is the time for Christmas DIY projects. We have 40 fun & festive Christmas tree ornament projects for you. Whether you want to make them for your family’s tree or as gifts, there are ornaments we know will catch your eye!
DIY Christmas ornaments are a terrific gift idea. If you are new to DIY-ing, don’t be intimidated by making Christmas ornaments. The only thing that can be challenging sometimes is when you want to make a big quantity of them – such as more than 10 of them, when you are a beginner. We recommend you pace yourself, try to DIY about 3 every day until you’re ready to start your gift giving. Don’t delay making them until just a weekend before!
In our projects, we’ve also included some super fun Christmas ornaments that you can make with kids & also some that are especially ideal as keepsake ornaments, to remember your child’s “little kid” years. One of the things that is special about decorating a family Christmas tree, is unpacking your ornaments, and then seeing ornaments from years past. It brings back so many memories. So by DIY-ing these ornaments as a family, you are creating a simple gift that will continue to give for many years to come, even for future generations too.
So, let’s get started! Merry Christmas & Happy DIY-ing!
