Handmade Christmas ornament

For many families, Christmas ornaments are timeless treasures. They are handed down through the generations and brought out each year as a way to reflect on memories past, while making beautiful new memories.

Store-bought Christmas ornaments have been more en vogue over the last couple decades, but a return to the respect for handmade items is upon us. More and more families are choosing handmade Christmas ornaments over the less personal store bought variety.

If you’ve thought about making your own Christmas ornaments, now is the time. Your imagination is your only boundary. If you’re not feeling a creative spark on your own, check out this list of handmade Christmas ornaments that will have you crafting in no time at all.
