DIY Christmas Ornaments
Each year I make a couple of new ornaments for my tree or to give as small gifts.
It’s fun to experiment with new paint techniques and ornament styles.
For this month’s challenge, I gathered all of my handmade ornaments and put them in one convenient post.
I hope you will find inspiration to make ornaments for your Christmas tree.
It’s the perfect way to personalize Christmas ornaments and is so much more meaningful than store-bought.
Plus, it’s nice to look back on all of the ornaments when you unpack your Christmas decorations every year.
