DIY Christmas ornaments: A fun last-minute DIY project for the winter break.
I’m pretty confident in saying that this is my easiest DIY yet. However, after making two of these fun little DIY Christmas ornaments, I know want to load my tree up with them! Perhaps next year. Our tree is already decked out in gold, white, and a few fun pops of red.
Picking out a Christmas tree and decorating it with our favorite ornaments (and some gold tinsel, for good measure) has quickly become one of my absolute favorite traditions. We get bundled up and head out to a local farm to pick the perfect tree. If you’ve yet to purchase a ‘real’ tree for your house, I highly recommend it. I grew up with a fake tree, which totally worked out, but now I know I just couldn’t go back.
There’s something so strangely special about venturing out to pick out a tree, throwing it on top of the car, and lugging it up to our apartment that gets me excited to do it every year now. I think the day we pick out our Christmas tree is one of the most magical days of the year. But, maybe that’s just me. Who else loves it? It’s so quintessentially new england in my mind.
DIY Christmas Ornaments
Well, whether you have a ‘real’ or a fake tree, everyone can easily make these DIY Christmas ornaments. All you’ll need is a few materials (that you may already have on hand – my favorite kind of DIY!).
Clear ornaments (that open on the top)
String or hooks
1. Open up your ornaments and lay them down on a flat surface (where they won’t roll off!).
2. Cut your winter greenery and Winterberry down to small, thin pieces.
3. Stuff your ornament with the greenery and Winterberry, as desired.
4. Put the top back on the ornaments.
5. Attach a hook or cut a piece of string & tie it to the top.
Right? Easiest DIY. Simply stuff your ornaments with fresh greenery and Winterberry! Or…get real creative and stuff it with whatever you’d like. I’m thinking glitter and confetti for next year’s tree. Those might be the messiest of materials, but I’m so into them for the holidays.
How did you decorate this year? Do you have a go-to theme each year or do you switch it up?
