I love making my own ornaments for our tree. It’s a lot of fun to see what we made over the years and they also make great gifts. I tend to personalize mine with messages such as “Baby’s First Christmas” in a nice metallic pen. If you like to change your Christmas Tree color each year, creating your own ornaments is a cost-effective way to add a punch of color without spending a fortune on new ornaments every year. Use a matching ribbon or sisal to tie everything together. Some of these ideas also work well as greeting cards too. Happy crafting!
Nothing satisfies me more than creating minimal waste when I’m crafting. These ornaments can be made using magazines or scraps from previous projects. If you’re offering these ornaments as a gift, keep the recipient in mind and use something that will suit them such as zebra stripes for your favorite fashionista, or team colors for the sports fan in your life. You can also personalize the bauble by writing on it or adding stickers if you’re weary of your penmanship.
This wreath ornament is a lot of fun to make and works well as a greeting card. Cut several petal shapes in varying colors to suit your decor and mass produce little wreaths to make cards and ornaments in a pinch. If you make too many (if there is such a thing) green petals, they can be used as leaves for flowers in other projects.
I love sheet music for using as crafts. I tend to pick up crafting materials at garage sales and church bazaars. This makes a great theme to use throughout your crafting for the season and works with any color scheme. Paint your sheet music or newsprint with watercolors to add a touch of color to your crafts.
Nothing says Christmas quite like a poinsettia. Make your own unique poinsettias that won’t drop leaves and require zero maintenance. best of all you won’t have to worry about whether or not it will harm your bed if consumed.
I adore using newsprint for crafts. It’s free and I love the simplicity of the black and white look. I often paint sheets of newsprint and hang them to dry then store them for crafting with later. You might say I’m a bit obsessed. This is a great bauble idea that is best made with a touch of glitter for some extra sparkle.
These simple, modern paper ornaments are great because they break up the monotony of circle shapes in my Christmas decor. They can be made with scraps, magazines, newsprint, sheet music, and any of the beautiful paper in your crafting collection. I like the way these are fastened but a stapler works just as well. You can glue an accent or piece of matching paper over the staples to conceal them.
I love stars in my Christmas decor. I would like to make a larger paper star as our tree topper this year. I will make 2 to fasten together so it will sit atop our fir more easily. A touch of gold spray paint and some glitter and BAM! a beautiful North Star for our tree. <3
I am so excited to make these Christmas baubles. I love the gold beads on these and I can’t wait to pick out some nice paper to make these with. The grey inspires me to try a color scheme I never considered before. Exciting!
This starry wreath is just the ticket to add a third shape to my star/ball Christmas overload. The only thing I’dd add to this is a touch of color. And glitter. Always glitter.
Another neat paper bauble idea. I love the wavy look on this one and even the color choice has me questioning my color scheme this year. So many beautiful possibilities!
You work too hard for your money to throw it all away on full price when you don't have to!
