25 Homemade Christmas Ornaments the Whole Family Can Make

Every year our tree is decorated almost entirely with homemade Christmas ornaments. We have those traditional ball ornaments on our tree and lots of lights, but other than that, it’s pretty much all handmade.

One year it was paper snowflakes (beautiful!); other years there have been many salt dough ornaments, beaded ornaments, and stained glass paper chains.

Christmas is around the corner, so I thought I’d put together a post of Christmas ornaments for the the whole family to make. 

25 Homemade Christmas Ornaments for the Whole Family to Make

Ornaments that are both easy and fun to make as well as beautiful on the tree.

Our tradition is to head out to the Christmas tree farm the day after Thanksgiving to choose our Christmas tree. So it’s getting time for us to think about tree decorations and to make a new batch of ornaments.

We keep some year to year and make some new, partly just for the joy of making. It wouldn’t feel like Christmastime if we weren’t making some ornaments.

Some of these are our faves and standbys, some are ones we’d like to try.
