DIY Holiday Ornaments
Homemade holiday ornaments are a fun way to create family memories. Ornaments made with love and care or created by little ones will be cherished for years to come.
If you are looking to start a new holiday tradition, we can get you started with four simply heartwarming holiday ornament creations.
These cinnamon ornaments are super simple to make and have a sweet aroma that lasts for up to a year! The best part? They only require 3 ingredients: 1 cup of unsweetened applesauce, 1 ½ cups of ground cinnamon, and 2 tablespoons of craft white glue. You need to mix the ingredients by hand, then roll the mixture out to cut with cookie cutters. You can make a hole where you will want to hang it from, then let it dry completely. Decorate your ornament with puff paint, glitter, or other decorations.
For more sweet-smelling ornaments, try these cinnamon stick Christmas trees. These simple ornaments only require 6 cinnamon sticks, holiday ribbon or strips of yarn, and craft glue or a hot glue gun. In order to create your mini tree ornaments, you should start by tying scraps of ribbon or fabric around a cinnamon stick. Then, cut the fabric in the shape of a Christmas tree. Lastly, glue yarn or twine in a loop so that you can easily hang the ornament. These trees look fine on their own, but you can also add embellishments to the ribbon or a star to the top.
For something a little more unique, try these popcorn glass ball ornaments. The popcorn gets popped inside the glass ornament, so it fills the space completely. If you can't find glass ornaments, pop some popcorn, and once it's cool, you can add them to a plastic fillable ornament. These cute ornaments are a great way to remind someone on your shopping-list of their favourite salty treat!
Finally, get rustic with these simple twig ornaments. You can create a star, snowflake, Christmas tree, or a reindeer with twigs you collect from a winter walk. All you will need is a little imagination, a hot glue gun, twine, and optional holiday decorations. These rustic twig ornaments may be simple to make, but add a natural element to your décor.
