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
Magnets but you could do double sided for ornaments! from Urban Comfort
Create a winter wonderland (so many options with this one!) from Spoonful
Feel free to leave a link in the comments to your blog post about ornaments you like to make!
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.
(Here's the original source for the clothespin glitter gift toppers. Ez at Creature Comforts is so very creative! http://www.creaturecomfortsblog.com/home/2011/12/12/diy-adorned-glittered-clothespin-gift-toppers.html)
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!
