I wanted to share with you my top 25 DIY ornaments! Some I created on my own, some I found from other blogger friends and some are Pinterest finds 🙂 They are all wonderful, and relatively easy to create! There is something so homey and wonderful about a Christmas Tree full of fun, handmade ornaments. Each one has its own story to tell!

“Remember when we…”    “That time we made…”    “I remember making this…”

I heard those phrases a dozens of times every Christmas! Growing up, our tree was always full of memories and funny stories. That is a big part of what makes Christmas  Christmas! At least to me 🙂

I’m working hard to collect and add memories to my own families tree, and this year I’m making lots of ornaments! Here are some of my favorites 🙂

    Hi there!
    I am visiting from Creative Mondays! Firstly, I’d like to say how nice it is to ‘meet you’! Secondly, WHAT a good idea to compile all the best ideas in one place! I've actually gained an idea from looking at this post of yours of an idea of recycling to make some Christmas decoration which is going to involve musical paper!!!
    Thanks for the inspiration!x
