In last week’s round up we looked at some gorgeous Christmas wreaths. It started me thinking about the other many wonderful crafts that are made, especially at this time of year. So this post today is for all the crafties out there.
We are dedicating the post solely to taking a peek at some handmade Christmas ornaments. There is a selection of eight crafts for you to browse, so make yourself comfortable.
Collection of 8 handmade Christmas ornaments:
Would you like to learn how to make those beautiful glass ornaments filled with snow? This Christmas bauble by Blissfully Ever After gives you a step by step tutorial to do just that. The end result is something pretty stunning, yet surprisingly so easy to do. I love the addition of the words inside the baubles too, it really adds to the finishing touch!
Christmas wouldn’t be the same without Santa, so I had to include something Santa related in this round up of handmade Christmas ornaments! This Santa bauble by by Parent Pretty fits the bill perfectly. This tutorial will help you make any kind of glitter bauble you choose, but I do love the Santa belt look on this one. It is really cheeky and you can just imagine Santa popping up from behind it!!
I do love gingerbread men, and they make absolutely gorgeous ornaments. So would you like to know how to make them yourself? Pop over to Craftberry Bush for the tutorial to make these gorgeous little fella’s. How adorable would these look hanging from the tree!
Once again Positively Splendid have come up with another great craft idea and this time it is a Christmas list from the kids. I love how these lists are personalized with photos and the tutorial on the blog shows just how easy they are to make. They would make a lovely keepsake to look back on in years to come.
These handmade Christmas ornaments by Honeybear Lane are simply adorable. They are only the same lines as the Christmas wish list above, but a different spin on the design. I love the simplicity of the design, yet the kids would still be so excited about them. A reel of Christmas wishes is the perfect ornament to hang to the tree and can be personalized however you want.
These singing angels by Zing Zing Tree look very typical of the kind of ornament I used to make as a kid, so I’m sure there would be lots of budding crafters out there who would love to make them too. They are a great school holiday Christmas activity and you could make a whole choir!
Snow globes are always popular at Christmas which is why I had to pick this waterless snow globe by Sweet Something Designs. This is definitely a Christmas project that the kids can get involved with and the end result is a magical Christmas ornament.
Don’t you just love handmade Christmas ornaments that look expensive but are actually very budget friendly? This punched tin ornament by The Thinking Closet has just that effect. It looks like a work of art and truly something that would look stunning with the lights flickering through it. Yet it really is just made from a tin can! This is an awesome tutorial, so go and check it out!
