This past Saturday afternoon we spent time together decorating the house as a family. We draped lights and hung our stockings from the piano. We pulled the perfect little fluffy tree off of our property and covered it in twinkling white lights and rose gold bulbs. The living room practically echoes with a romantic holiday glow.
To us, our tree is perfect. But there are some who have noticed that our tree is missing something: homemade ornaments.
Homemade ornaments seem to be a huge tradition in homes across the country. My husband and I prefer the less-cluttered tree look, but I am hopelessly sentimental and know that there will soon be a time when our daughter wants to make her own ornaments. So I began to look for DIY ornamenrs that I could bear to see on our tree and found these lovely pieces! Rustic, charming, and easy to make. Enjoy!
These wood slice ornaments from Beneath My Hearth are just beautiful! They would be perfect for any rustic, cozy homes out there (I’m talking to you, New Englanders!).
Woodland animals seem to be trendy right now. I don’t know about you, but I have seen woodland animal print on almost every baby product out there this year. I wouldn’t be surprised to see woodland themed toddler potties on the market in the near future. I regress. However, these woodland ornaments would be too cute to make with the little deer ones in your life this Christmas.
Could these little guys get any cuter? These ornaments require very little time and materials to make, while still serving as a kid-friendly and mom-approved ornament!
Now this one requires some beginner-level crochet knowledge, but if you are good with yarn and like the look of it, these stars are a relatively easy project that would make great tree ornaments or holiday garlands. Get the free pattern here. This could be a great project for teaching your littles to crochet!
I hope you enjoy this post and share with your friends! Happy crafting!
