I know what you’re thinking – it’s February, why are we talking about Christmas right now? On one hand, I get it. Why look ahead (or look back) when there are so many holidays and activities between now and December 25th. On the other hand, I think this logic is a little flawed. There’s a reason it’s called the most wonderful time of the year. No matter where you are and what you believe in, the Christmas season is positively magical. Why not keep that spirit going all year long?
Luckily, we’ve got you covered with the latest eBook from AllFreeChristmasCrafts. In “How to Make Ornaments: 10 Christmas Ornaments to Make” eBook, you’ll find all kinds of craft ideas to give the holiday spirit going all year long. Each of these projects can be created at home with easy-to-find materials. You can even round up the kids for many of these projects and spend some time together. Christmas ornaments often turn into keepsakes and are often passed down through the generations. Why buy a store-bough piece when you can create something meaningful at home?
Snow Ball Ornament
Snow is the true sign that winter has arrived. No matter how old you are, you have to admit that when the first snow of the year arrives, it’s a magical feeling. Capture this spirit with help from this uncomplicated ornament craft. All you need is felt, pins and a Styrofoam ball. Attach a ribbon and hang up your creation – it’s that easy. Best of all, you don’t have to be precise or follow a long list of instructions. Just express your creativity and make something that reflects your personality.
3D Star Ornament
Yes, the name of this project is intimidating. Paper folding can often be frustrating and complicated. But guess what? There’s very little folding necessary! Instead, cut out stars and adhere them together, all you have to do is bend the paper to create the shape. It doesn’t get much easier. Choose paper that sticks out on your tree so everyone can spot your creation.
This is one of the most popular patterns on the site and it’s easy to see why. This project is whimsical and adorable. Also, you don’t need a sewing machine to complete this project. Grab some felt, a needle and some thread and you’ll be ready to go. Give this ornament as a gift – it looks great all year and is versatile enough to be hung from a doorknob or hook during the year.
