Sometimes the holidays fly by so quickly that it seems impossible to find time to craft and create. That’s where I love suggesting bite-size projects like DIY ornaments.

Depending on the age of your kids, you can invite the whole family to join in on an afternoon of crafting these various ornaments. OR, take a solo afternoon for yourself with your favorite tutorials, craft supplies, and a hot Christmas-y beverage to unwind this holiday season.

What Do I Need to Make These Ornaments?

These ornaments feature a variety of craft supplies and techniques. From washi tape to wooden embroidery hoops, wood slices to old sweaters, there’s a project for every crafter here.

The best thing about crafting your own Christmas ornaments is that they can be great “scrap-buster” projects. All those scraps of fabric, ribbon, interesting papers, glitters, and more can be creatively used in custom ornaments for your tree.

Homemade ornaments also make a great last-minute gift idea too!
