Time to get Crafty: Ornaments

We may earn money or products from the companies mentioned in this post. Please see policies for more information.

I’m declaring this a “crafty” week. We all love getting new crafty ideas.  I’ve got ornaments, gifts to craft, and just fun things to keep the kids busy this week. I hope you love it!

My boys love making ornaments – it’s usually me that gets bored with the same ones all the time! I’ve been looking for ideas for ornaments for us to make this year and I’ve found some that I thought you all would like! I haven’t gotten our decorations out yet but once I do I’ll share 2 of our favorites that I haven’t seen yet on the internet!

This helicopter from craftycounterpart on Instructables has to be one of the most unique – love it!

Cute reindeer ornaments from fingerprints by Little Bit Funky


Snowmen handprint ornaments from Meet the Dubiens

For the older kiddos – mosaic ornaments from old CDs from Creme de la Craft

Love just doing a little handprint on a clear glass ball for babies first Christmas – from a sorta fairytale

A cornstarch/baking soda/water clay ornament from the woodside kitchen (kids could get creative with the shape, stamps, or colors)

Egg Carton Folk Ornaments from Michele Made Me

The boys and I are loving this idea for an ornament/topping presents – from Creature Comforts

    What a cool collection of really unique ornaments. I have only seen one before and it's the one with the winter wonderland. Cool. Cool. Cool. I can't wait to share these with my kiddos.

  2. These are wonderful and inspiring. My eyes popped for the helicopter, my kidlets would love this.
    The Snowmen handprint ornaments from Meet the Dubiens was a gift from my Kindergartener way back when (he is newly nine now), and there was poem attached to it.

    Thank you for posting!
