7 Easy DIY Christmas Ornaments | The Homemade Creative

If you love a homemade Christmas, you’re going to love this. I’ve pulled together 7 Easy DIY Christmas Ornaments that you can make on your own, or with your kids. Serenity’s not quite ready to make little ornaments with me, like these, but we’re going to make a fun Christmas craft tomorrow, so be sure to watch for me to share about that next week, especially if you have younger kids, like mine.

1. Gingerbread Ornament This adorable glass ball ornament from the Family Focus Blog is super cute, and super easy. It involves spray paint so you’ll want to handle that yourself if you make it with younger kids, but anyone can have fun painting on the sweet gingerbread face.

2. Wooden Bead Ornament The sky is the limit when it comes to this fun ornament design! Wooden beads come in tons of sizes and shapes, and with washi tape and paint you can create any design you like. These are featured on the Oubly blog, designed by Katie of Twin Stripe.

3. Reindeer Thumbprint Ornament Twenty minutes or less and you can have a whole fleet of these cute little guys, ready to hang out on your tree or dress up your gift packaging. This cute design by Little Bit Funky is one of my favorites this year!

4. Cinnamon Stick Tree Ornament I love this ornament so, so much because not only is it adorable, but can you even imagine who fantastic your house will smell with one or more of these decorating your tree?? I’m a big fan of using this ornament from Crafts Unleashed to dress up gifts or goody baskets, for that precise reason.

5. Gold Leaf + Ink Snowflake Ornament This ornament looks like it should be complicated, but it’s actually super easy – as long as you can contain your inner perfectionist, as it’s meant to look a little bit messy (therein lies the charm). Another feature on the Oubly blog, this time from Ursula of kraft&mint.

6. Wreath Of Buttons Ornament The beauty of button ornaments is that they’re extremely versatile – you can make pretty much anything you want, with a little creativity. The wreath is the easiest place, and perfect for the young crafter in your life. This one is from Cherishables, and is one of three fun designs for little hands.

7. Frozen-Inspired I Spy Ornament I’m definitely bookmarking this one for next year, when I can (hopefully) trust Serenity not to try to eat the “snow” while we’re putting it together. She loves Olaf, and my only worry is that she might be upset that he’s apparently melted! This cute design is from This Mama Loves, and I know THIS mommy sure does love it!

And there you have it! 7 Easy DIY Christmas Ornaments for you and your kids to fill the remaining hours between now and Christmas. You can find more cool ornaments and a lot of other Christmas goodies by following me on Pinterest. So tell me…

Which of these ornaments is your favorite?

    My favorite is the reindeer thumbprint ornament. That is so cute and would be something I’d cherish forever.

    1. I was thinking the same thing. ? Wouldn’t that be a fun one to do as a grandparent gift, too? Between my sister-in-law and me, there are five grandkids so far, and I’m going to suggest we do this next year for her parents.

    1. He’s adorable, isn’t he? ?

  4. I can’t choose a favorite, they’re all nice. Crafting is always so much fun and I can’t wait to see what you’re going to make with your daughter.

    1. That’s one of my biggest difficulties – it’s hard to narrow it down and pick something to actually DO. #lol I’m writing up my post right now for tomorrow morning, and I can’t wait to show you guys what we made! ?

  5. I’ve never seen any of those before. They’re all super cute and colorful!

    1. I’m glad you enjoyed them! 🙂

  6. Oh the Reindeer Thumbprint Ornament is my favorite ornament! I love home made things like that. Super cute list of ornaments.

    1. Thanks! I love that one, too. Serenity wouldn’t be controlled enough to pull off that ornament this year, but I’m hoping next year to do at least one.

  7. These are all adorable! I especially love the first one where you use your fingerprint to make a reindeer!

    1. That’s definitely the favorite! ?

    I love making ornaments. I think the little Christmas tree is so cute.

    1. I really like that one, too. And if you didn’t have cinnamon sticks handy, you could substitute broken twigs from a tree or bush – easy peasy!

    I love that Reindeer thumbprint ornament, I have to make one of those with my youngest. Those little Christmas trees are adorable too.

    1. How old is your youngest? I want to do that one, too, but I’m waiting until next Christmas; I think my 2 year old wouldn’t like the precise nature of this one quite yet. #lol Have fun!

    My mother used to take empty walnut shells, glue them back together with a bell inside, and paint them to look like santa or reindeer. I have some great memories making those ornaments with her, and we still put them on the tree today!

    1. Oh wow, I love that idea!! I’m definitely going to have to try that next year. ? Thank you for sharing such a special memory!

  11. What a great roundup. I’m stealing at least 2 of these ideas for craft time with my daughter this week! 🙂

    1. Wonderful! Enjoy. ?

    These are really cute! I never thought of making an ornament out of a cinnamon stick but I bet it makes the room smell wonderful!

    1. I would definitely think so. I’m considering making a bunch of them next year, and attaching them to gifts!
