Linky Love: Homemade Ornament Roundup

I have been collecting tutorials for homemade ornaments.  These are all easy enough for the kids to help with.  I think this is going to be an annual tradition for us.  Last year W and I made cinnamon-applesauce ornaments and handed them out to everyone on our list.  (You can see one of the cinnamon hearts in this post.)

* Cinnamon Applesauce "Cookies" (basic recipe, but there are tons of variations on the web)
* Salt Dough Ornaments .. a classic!
* Beeswax or Crayon Wax Dipped Pinecones
* Recycle Toys into Ornaments
* Sparkly Yarn Ornaments
* Vintage Glitter Snowballs (part of a series of 24 Handmade Ornaments, though not are as kid-friendly to make)
* Retro Snowflakes
* Sparkling Ice Crystals
* Borax Crystals
* Mice (made from Hershey kisses!)
* Felt Wrapped Trees
* Not technically an ornament but this (unbreakable) felt garland is perfect for homes with little ones.
* Button Wreath
As if all that wasn't enough for you, here is a list of holiday books with coordinating kids crafts.  Most are, you guessed it, ornaments.

Shhhhh!  We made these for the Grands last week.

Anyone have others to share?


  1. Oh my gosh this is the coolest post ever, I looked at every single one. You've inspired me to make some of these this weekend!!!


Thanks so much for taking the time to say hello! I appreciate hearing from my tens of readers more than you know. :)
