Christmas Crafts – DIY Christmas Ornaments

by Emma W.R. on December 11, 2015

There is nothing more that I like better than getting my kids involved and doing fun Do It Yourself projects.  What better time that at Christmas when you have the ability to display your wonderful DIY Christmas ornaments all around your house.

1The first one I thought to share with you is making ornaments out of foam balls that you can find in your local craft store.  I pick up a bunch of straight pins and either beads or small buttons and ribbon.  Hang them on the tree or display in a crystal bowl.

I am not afraid to say that wine corks can be found at any time in my house.  This craft takes a little more time and prep but is still so much fun.  I love snowmen.  2You dip the corks in white paint, superglue them together along with a button hat and other finishing touches.

3Another fun and easy DIY Christmas ornament is to use cookie cutters and either old scraps of wrapping paper, pictures or other loose items.  You glue them to the back of the cookie cutter and it is almost like you are putting them in a frame. They are great to hang on the tree or to hang on the window sill of the kitchen for a little extra flair.

Simple empty glass balls or lightbulbs are also awesome for DIY Christmas ornament crafts.  It is easy for all ages.  You can fill them with confetti, sand, ribbon, sprinkles, etc.  Or you can use garland inside or out.  Just apply glue and adhere the garland or even glitter.  You can paint them, wrap them in Christmas fabric or even apply colorful tape.







Get your family motivated to decorate your house for the holiday season with DIY Christmas ornaments!

Those DIY glass bulb ornaments are so pretty and creative. I’m sure it’d be really fun to do with kids too by adding our own decorations to them.

These are easy to make and look lovely. They’d be awesome gifts.

These are wonderful ideas. They’ll be great projects to do with my children this weekend.

I start my DIY ornaments in November, around Thanksgiving time. I get lots of inspiration on Pinterest.

DIY ornaments are often so special and last a lot longer than anything you buy in stores.

Me too Jordie. This is truly the best time of the year

These DIY Christmas ornaments are amazing! My kids are teenagers now and are no longer interested in arts and crafts, but they get into a festive mood when they see Mom getting the house ready for the holidays. I personally enjoy being creative with my décor. Thanks for the tips. I especially love the snowman made out of cork.

Great post! I really like getting my family motivated and DIO (do it ourselves!) for Christmas!
