Post Update 2022: WOW! Can you believe that this collection of top DIY Christmas Ornaments was published 10 years ago? Where has the time gone?! This article remains a top resource each holiday season, but over time some of the original ornaments that I shared have disappeared or become unavailable. I’ve given it a little over haul – removing broken links images and creating new collage graphics to match, plus adding in some new favorites that I adore.
I hope you find an ornament you just HAVE to make for yourself!
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 🙂

I love the script star and the string ornaments! And the knitting one – I feel like I need to make that for a friend who is obsessed with knitting! Repin! 🙂

LOVE these! Thank you.
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
Aww lots of sweet ideas here 🙂
Thanks for linking up to Creative Mondays

I just hopped by from Turn it Up Tuesday to read your post and explore your amazing collection of DIY ornaments. I am getting read to trim our family tree and these ornaments provided me with so much inspiration! Have a happy holiday!
Not sure which one I like better. The knitting ball or the one wrapped in twine. Thanks so much for sharing these! They are all great!
I'm totally in love with all of them! Pinned and tweeted. We appreciate you being a part of our party, and I hope to see you on Monday at 7 pm. We love partying with you!
Happy Saturday! Lou Lou Girls
