Feathered Friends Ornament
Fun, funky, and bedazzled in glitter, simple cardstock tags are transformed into greatornaments. Cut the bird bodies from red or white glitter paper to avoid the mess of traditional glitter, and draw on the details using paint pens. We used white for the snow on the background, black for the eyes and legs, and red for the details on the feet. Use a hole punch at the top and baker’s twine to hang.
- Cookie Cutter Ornaments
You use them to shape your Christmas cookies, but have you ever considered turning cookie cutters into decorations themselves? Wrap Christmas-theme cutters in narrow gingham ribbon and outfit with a loop of baker’s twine to make the easy Christmas ornaments.
Mini Chalkboard Christmas Ornaments
With just a little paint and our free holiday patterns, unfinished wood discs can transform into colorful Christmas ornaments. Simply use red chalk paint to color the discs, chalk to draw the designs, and a red ribbon to hang.
25 Days Ornaments
Mark the 25 days leading up to Christmaswith a tree full of numbered ornaments. Have fun with the design — turn the numbers into an advent calendar, hang one every day, or use them to decorate a smaller tabletop tree. We used number stamps and pastel papers to create our ornaments, but you can handwrite yours on more traditional Christmas colors.
