DIY Christmas Ornaments

DIY Christmas Ornaments

Making new ornaments for our tree is one of our favorite Christmas traditions in the Huebner household. This also doubles as a great stocking stuffer for the Grandparents…Mom win! These are some of our tried and true favorites:

Painted Hand Print
Painted Hand Prints
Materials:
Air Dry Clay
Paint 
Ribbon

Directions:
Roll out your clay. We molded ours into circles but you can use any shape you want…a heart, star, or even a Christmas tree (here are some inexpensive cookie cutters that would work great!)! Once the clay is in your desired shape have your child push their hand into the clay. Don’t forget to make a hole where you want to thread your ribbon through (we used a sharpened pencil). Allow the clay to dry completely. Let your child paint their hand print. Tie a ribbon on for easy hanging.

Sticker Ornaments
Sticker Ornaments
Materials:
Construction Paper
Scissors
Holiday Stickers (need to restock? Amazon for the win)
Laminator or Packing Tape
Yarn

Directions:
Cut your construction paper into your desired shape: Mitten, Snowflake, Letter, Reindeer, etc. Let your child decorate these shapes with holiday stickers. Laminate or if you don’t have a laminator cover both sides with clear packaging tape and trim around edges. Punch a hole into your shape and thread your yarn through for easy hanging.

Sled Picture Ornaments
Sled Picture Ornaments
Materials:
Popsicle Sticks
Hot Glue Gun
Paint
Family Picture
Twine

Directions:
Take your family photo (this could be just of your kid(s) or the whole family) and cut out the outline of the people in your picture. I thought it would be fun to take a picture of my kids on a blanket so they look all warm and cozy on the sled. Hot glue your popsicle sticks into the shape of a sled. After the glue dries, you or your children can paint the sled. We chose red to make it more festive. Hot glue the picture to your sled once your paint has dried. Hot glue (or tape) a piece of twine to the back of the picture for hanging. If you have a furry friend you can make them the reindeer! 

Reindeer Picture Ornaments
Reindeer Ornaments
Materials:
Brown Construction Paper
White and Red Paint
4x6 Picture of Child
Hot Glue Gun
Twine

Directions:
Cut the outline of your child out of your picture. Coat both your child’s palms with white paint to create the antlers on the brown construction paper. After their handprints have dried, cut them out. Add a dab of hot glue to the base of both handprints and stick them on your child’s picture. Put a tiny dot of red paint on their nose. Add the twine to the back top of the ornament to hang.

Every year when we break out our Christmas decorations I have so much fun unwrapping all our homemade ornaments and remembering how much fun we had making them. Hopefully some of them are sturdy enough to last for years and years to come! Have fun making your own Christmas memories this year.
