DIY Ornaments and Kids Crafts

I wrote recently about my mom’s home during the holiday season! If you missed it you can check it out:

Christmas at Mom’s House

I decided to do a separate post about the ornaments she worked on this year since there were so many cute ideas!  I think MOST of them can be done with your kiddos!  These first ornaments are a BIG favorite of mine.  I love burlap and the old wooden measuring stick she used.  Old buttons are also something I love to look at.

She bought these clear ornaments at Hobby Lobby and filled them with burlap as well.  I love how they look!

Adding a simple G to the ornament is a nice touch on our tree at home!

I love the burlap flowers she made for her tree! You can also get a glimpse of how she hot glued twine around a red bulb to make it match her tree!  Very clever!

Another great project was painting the tips of the pinecones white to make little Christmas trees!

I hope this gives you a few easy ideas to add to your Christmas season!  You can jazz up your tree easily with a little imagination!  I love her homemade ornaments.  Having crafts ready for family gatherings is a great way to keep the kids busy and to create fun memories together!

Check back soon as I share with you some of my favorite ornaments from my tree!
