13 Christmas Ornaments You Can MAKE :) (Out of Felt, Clothespins, yarn, and more!)

Growing up, decorating the Christmas tree was made extra special because I had handmade ornaments by my grandma, myself and my sister, my mom, and various other family members.  I don’t know what it is exactly, but I’ll always feel that handmade is more meaningful!  I could have a tree full of expensive glass ornaments and it just wouldn’t be the same. Not as fun or as personal.

Unfortunately I don’t have the same ornaments I had growing up, but I plan to start making special keepsake ornaments this Christmas!  And I have my mom working on some to send us, too.  :)

Here are some of the tutorials I’ll be following:

Okay, that’s quite a bit to do in just a month or so – but I definitely will be making a bunch of felt ornaments since I have a stack of felt, and a few of the others, too.  :)  I can’t wait!

Will you be making ornaments with your kids this year?
