A DIY Christmas

Do you do any DIY for the Christmas holidays? It’s usually a DIY Christmas around here. I think making things is much more meaningful than buying a bunch of stuff manufactured in China. Especially if you have kids, you can make a tradition of creating tree ornaments and other decorations together every year. My mom did that with my sister and me. Starting very young, every year around the kitchen table together, we painted plaster Christmas tree ornaments. The ornaments painted when I was eight were a little messy but I still have them almost {ahem} years later. With time and practice, we kids got better at painting and now painting is a regular hobby for all three of us. Bringing out those Christmas ornaments brings up lots of good memories.

So it was perfect that Hometalk asked me to put together a board of easy DIY Christmas tree ornaments. You might find some good ideas for your Christmas decorating here:

Easy Christmas Tree Ornaments

I had fun looking at blogger projects posted on Hometalk, and seeing the creative things they used to make Christmas ornaments. Can you believe some of these projects used:

  • Old stair railings
  • Broken chair spindles
  • Embroidery hoops
  • Zippers
  • And even shower curtain rings?

Did you know these things can be very Christmas-y? It’s true, they can! Click through to the board to see how in the DIY posts.
