Adding shiny store bought ornaments to your Christmas tree makes it look great. However, some of the most cherished ornaments you will have are the ones you and you family make. This is a guide about homemade Christmas ornaments.
Fun little dog ornaments, a cute gift for the dog lover and fun to do a "litter" for fund raising. I picked up different colors of garland at thrift stores and garage sales so there were a variety of colors. I even made a few girlie pooches with pink ornaments!
White felt figure skate tree ornament.
Approximate Time: Half an hour
Cut out two pieces of felt in a boot shape as shown.
For each skate, slip the felt through the paper clip and glue along the side edges to secure.
Using all six strands of embroidery thread, use an overcast stitch to make the laces, leaving enough thread to tie in a bow so that you can hang it on your tree.

Everytime I drank one of the Dannon Drinkable yogurts this year I thought the bottles were shaped like little snowmen.
Create glittering holiday ornament to dress up your tree. Add bow and holly leaves for finishing touches.

I'm looking for a plastic canvas pattern for small ornaments in shape of slippers; one looks like a reindeer, the other a panda bear. Found them in a second hand store.

Panda came out best. Difficult to scan as they are 3-D. I will probably have to make a template and do some counting! Won't be difficult.
These beautiful ornaments would make a lovely addition to any holiday tree. You can make them to keep or give away. You have to make them in stages, over the course of a few days only because the paint is on the inside and needs time to dry completely.
Every few years, I teach another young crafter how to make these ornaments. My niece still has the ones we made together more than 30 years ago!
Start now and make ornaments for your tree. A lovely way to use up your empty thread spools! Works equally well with plastic or wooden spools, big or small. Great to use as package decorations or to give as gifts to friends/co-workers!
An old curtain ring made into a Christmas decor. First I washed them then let them dry (alternatively painted them) then sketch a design on it with glue and sprinkled with glittering dusts. Attach a ribbon formed in bowtie and glue with a pearl or button (alternatively twined with tube cleaner). Tie a silver, gold, a crochet thread so it is easy to hang on the Christmas tree or in windows.

Use to decorate gifts, hang on tree, etc.

This charming, round Christmas ornament is fun and easy to make yourself. It comes out as a fancy golden rose ball with a traditional bow.
Christmas ornaments I am making for Christmas to put on the tree. Made with plastic canvas.

I want to make some Christmas ornaments. Does anyone have any good, thrifty ideas?
I'm from TX. We Texans are so full of state pride, we are bustin' with it! I found a TX shaped cookie cutter and I have a bunch of polymer clay. I went to Hobby Lobby tho, and found some red and blue with sparkles in it.
So I rolled out this clay and cut out TX. shapes. At the top, in the panhandle, I took a plastic straw and punched out holes for white ribbon, and then baked the clay. After all of them are done and strung, I bought silver and gold paint pens and I plan to write a Christmas greeting on them and give them as gifts. Having a blast with it!
Does anyone have anything to share on plastic canvas Christmas ornaments that I can do to make?
