DIY Christmas Ornaments

Every year I try and come up with some fun new ideas for handmade by ME Christmas ornaments and this year not only did I make my 2015 Snowman ornie is but I came up with some more simple ornies and one I found on Pinterest.

Here is my 2015 snowman ornament - cute right?

These are relatively easy to make and make great gift toppers.

Here's the first:

I found a huge bag of shower curtain rings at he thrift store and thought they made cute wreath shapes best part was they came with mini gold hanger loops - so for these all I did was wrap pretty silky yarn around them and then added some sweet felt flowers I made. Now they could go on a gift along with a tag and then kept to add to their tree - great gift idea! 

This next one I found on Pinterest and this is my version:

Once again I found a bunch of grapevine wreaths at a boutique and bought them to make "something"  with - so I found this cute image and did something's differently...used some lace and then hand wrote on the banner and fell totally in love with this cute ornament. 

I'm all about the nativity and Baby Jesus this year as I was with Frida anyway I also made these larger ornaments or gifts as they could be a bit big to add to the tree but awesome none the less!!!

Corks are so easy to find - if you like wine that is!!! Wink wink - in case you are wondering I used some stiff wire to thread the corks and bells onto then twisted into a circle and added a burlap bow and hemp hanger and ta-da done and oh so sweet!!!

I am partial to all things handmade so I think anyone that receives a handmade ornament would be so delighted and you'd be their new best friend!!!! Lucky you....

Happy crafting...
