Christmas ornament making does not need to be difficult! In fact, I have five easy Christmas ornaments you can make today!
The Christmas season is officially here and the decorating has started!
Mom and Dad are staying with us until their home can be put back together, so I made Mom help with the Christmas tree.
We had Christmas music playing in the background. I heard Dad do a little singing.
I love having the Christmas tree up but sometimes it’s boring to put it up alone.
So this was a treat for me.
Even if I do all the decorating, it’s fun to have someone hang and chit-chat with me while trimming the tree.
It just makes it more festive.
Greg usually hides.
What kind of tree do you like to decorate? Do you have a theme?
I like a little bit of an eclectic look to the tree. I like the elegant touches…
…like crystal bird ornaments…
…or white and gold angels…
but I also love adding some homemade ornaments to the mix.
When you mix it all up you have a tree full of memories!
That’s why, today, I am sharing 5 Easy Christmas Ornaments You Can Make Today…
…these show up on my tree year after year!

These pasta angel ornaments are an old school classic craft! They are a classic because you can’t help but love them!

…or you can dress them up for the occasion!
This is Ornament Making 101 and the kids can glue and glitter to their hearts’ content but it’s just as fun for the adults!

Snowmen should glisten with all the wonder of freshly fallen snow…

Coastal Starfish Ornaments
I made these starfish ornaments long before we moved to Florida. I have always had an affinity for the ocean, beaches and all things coastal.
They could not be easier and they sparkle like sand in the sunlight

Birds On A Log
Don’t these birds look cozy all snuggled together in their nest?
The only thing better is for them to be nestled in your Christmas tree!

As you can see, glitter is a bit of a staple in my Christmas decorating and crafting.
Greg would always say that it must be Christmastime because there would be a trail of glitter out the door of my craft room (which was in the basement) all the way up the stairs.
That’s pretty much why I have a craft shed now. I’ll give you a tour of it soon.
If you can’t wait, I have updates on my Instagram stories, which you can find HERE!
