I always like looking at Christmas ornaments. I love looking at all the ornaments as we hang them on our tree. It’s good to remember all the people and places of which they remind us. Plus, there are so many unique ones as well as so many simple ones that I could make! I try to gather inspiration all year because I make ornaments for my piano students.
Speaking of, Domesticali shared a music note origami wreath. I think this might be the ornament I make this year. It’s simple but a different music ornament from anything I’ve made yet.
One year, we made a whole bunch of juice lid ornaments at church. It looks complicated but with a bit of patience, anyone can make beautiful ornaments. The Better Mom shared her juice lid ornament tutorial here.
Ask Anna created a Christmas tree out of wine corks. I think you could easily adapt this to an ornament concept and paint some of the ends if you wanted to do so. It’s a good reason to save wine corks, too!
A Sorta Fairytale created a beautiful Baby’s 1st Christmas Ornament. I am doing this next year for our baby! I think using embossing powder is a nice touch, too.
Speaking of ornaments and our baby, I want to start an ornament collection for our baby. Adding one ornament a year (handmade or bought) means there will be quite a collection someday! To help record the reasons and memories, I need to start an ornament picture journal. I Love It All shared printable journal cards that can be slipped into a simple photo album by the pictures. I love this idea to record the memories! I will be doing this, too.
Do you have an ornament collection? Or do you have one for your children? I’d be curious to hear how you do it!
