Do it yourself darnit! Ornaments

‘Tis the season for tickling lights, wreaths, decorations, and ornaments! Being the craft lover that I am I searches far and wide through cyber land and found some adorable DIY ornament tutorials for all the crafty folks. Maybe I’ll even throw one together here myself shortly… we’ll see!

If you follow “A Beautiful Mess” you may have already seen this but I thought it was so creative I had to pass it on! I really need to try this and cakies did a wonderful job of illustrating the step by step of making these unique wrapped decorations.


Over on a new blog, Pear and Peacock, I discovered on my search you can get a little groovy with this awesome DIY Sequin Ornaments!

Design*Sponge has a great tutorial to get a little earthy with your holiday with this terrarium ornament.

How can I not use an Etsy tutorial? Reduce reuse and recycle with this cutie miniature stocking ornament!

Looking for something a little less in depth? I love this idea from little chief honeybee. Make your Christmas tree a little more personal this year with photos! They really don’t HAVE to be instant photos. Super cute +super easy = A++ in my book!

I’ve talked about little dear’s shop before and I’m still loving everything she does. She just put up a great Christmas star ornament tutorial on her little dear tracks blog. One wonder: adorable!

Don’t want to make anything for your tree this year? No sweat! There are tons of great ornaments on Etsy.com! I highly recommend the ever so talented Skunkboy Creatures. Her line of little stuffed ornaments is fabulous!

Do you have an ornament tutorial to share? Or do you make ornaments that are for sale…? Perhaps I’ll do a round two!

Happy Trails!
